Barnsley Chronicle: ‘Families forced to rely on handouts at Christmas

As reported in the Barnsley Chronicle today, Michael has criticised the Government after hundreds of families in Barnsley were forced to rely on food handouts to get them through Christmas. 

chronCommenting, Michael said: “Working families on low incomes are bearing the brunt of the Government’s failure. How can we live in a country where a government cuts taxes for millionaires and people are queuing up for food banks? It’s appalling.”
