Daily Mail reporter lies to food bank, steals money from the state, and from people who legitimately need it, all in the name of writing a smear article about food banks.
Mind blown.

"No questions asked" apart from all the questions they asked him…..

Well, that is awful. How much do you have to hate the poor to go as far as to steal their food and then try and shut down places that help them? What could you possibly gain from this?

A nice expose on how assholes ruin good things to promote their own careers.

But I think the important thing to take away from this is that, in response to this article, donations to the Trussell Trust Food Bank charity soared by over 1000%, many specifically donating because they were angry at the Mail article. Despite what the press want us to think, most people are not angry and resentful that those in desperate need are given free food, even if that means that a few people try and cheat the process. They are more angry and ashamed that a country as rich as Britain, with a supposed welfare state, should have the need for food banks in the first place.

Captain America: Winter Soldier - the post-credits scene I wanted

I actually love how Winter Soldier used Natasha’s character: not a love interest, not a damsel, not a sidekick, but a complex, interesting character in her own right.

But… BUT…I sort of wish the post-credits scene had been her jumping into a car, and we cut back to see that the driver is Hawkeye, waiting for her.
"Where to?" he asks and she gives a small smile.
"I was thinking maybe… Budapest."

Tyres screech, off they go, next movie in the making…

trying-to-resonate-concrete:

"I would have preferred this writer explore these ideas" is an opinion.

"This writer has trouble with certain aspects of story-telling" is a criticism.

"This writer sucks and is talentless" is a mean-spirited insult.

"This writer should die" is a vile, shitty thing for which there is no excuse for saying.

Please learn the difference and please don’t pretend you’re doing one of the two former when you’re doing one of the two latter.

This.
