This is tantamount to giving an alcoholic drinking money
The Dame has a far more effective alternative....
.....give it to a councillor you trust(yes, there are a few) and ask them to use it as emergency funding for any resident in their ward in dire straits. It could be for a much needed holiday or clothes for the children.
So much more effective than handing it back to a bunch of fools.
The Dame gave her Winter Fuel Allowance(why would she need it when she winters on her island in the Bahamas?)
She was delighted to know that the councillor had been able to give direct aid to someone in great need in our Borough.
