The Chancellor’s latest attempt to butter up the British public is attracting the wrong sort of crowd, ministers have been told.
Rishi Sunak’s ‘Meal Deal’ is encouraging people to ‘eat out to help out’, but the scheme has been inundated by both men and women wanting to feast on hairy pie and lady’s lettuces.
Government critic John Moaner, told WalesOnCraic:
“Rishi’s latest Delboy attempt to try and persuade us that we’re all having a good time is not drawing the kind of crowd he was hoping for. The hotlines have been flooded by all kinds of people wanting to take a leisurely stroll in someone’s lady garden, and hoping to get a sneaky mouthful of kebab at the same time. Rishi thinks he’s helping out but in a time where millions of people have not been able to get their hands on things they’ve wanted to, this kind of scheme is just asking for trouble.”
Government ministers have been asked to change the slogan.
“It’s nearly as bad as #susanalbumparty. All kind of weirdos start coming out of the woodwork when you post stuff like that.”
