Mark Goodway from Bristol's Matthew Tree Project Food Store charity discusses food banks and the recent massive increase in need for these – Matthew Tree now has 6 outlets in Bristol. This is put mainly down to changes in benefits, including benefit sanctions. Mark talks of the broken people he sees and the vicious circle of cutting benefits leading to stress and health problems, and then inability to work. PMQs: Nick Betts MP asks PM about Children who have no food in the house over the whole weekend. MPs yell 'Scrooge' as Nick Raynsford MP tells PM the Archbishops of Westminster and Canterbury criticise Coalition government's neglect of the poor. Matthew Tree based on Biblical St. Matthew, helps people mentally as well as with food. The EU offered Britain about £22 million for food banks but the UK cabinet and Prime Minister David Cameron has turned it down. Continuing to receive EU agricultural subsidies of tens of millions of pounds for The Queen, one of the richest people in the world. Martin Summers and a round up of international stories: Ukraine moves eastwards but keeps EU ties; US AfriCom, which is based in Stuttgart, Germany, and Western sponsored 'sectarian' wars in Africa bringing colonial troops in; inmates at Guantanamo Bay being 'bribed' with luxuries and pornography to work for the CIA - known as 'Penny Lane' and 'Strawberry Fields Forever' programmes. Frome based Freya Lawton, from Peace Intention, discusses this new initiative harnessing what people really want, to help bring peace in the world.- Peace Intention website
