No, but I have seen the countless ones that lambast Daily Mail reading thickos and point out that you have to have a referral from social services to get food from a food bank.

Shows full price for me

I wouldn't go on a rollcoster in this weather, my nipples would fall off from that height!

strawmantastic thread, nothing like a bit of uninformed nastiness to get things going eh folks.

Some people are just born evil and their parents don't beat it out of them. In the past we could ignore such ignorant and moronic people but now they proudly parade their nastiness for all to see.

I wasn't saying anything about people near you I don't know them, I was talking about the benefits programmes,every single one I've watched the people featured have no money and either drink,smoke or both and visit a food bank.

Its a good deal we did this last time in early summer , however it was extremely busy with a 30 wait for most rides , but it least it won't be mega hot like it was back then

Can you just pay on the gate with this deal I'm just thinking of the good old British weather

ohdearohdear

These tv shows make my blood boil too, as they don't offer a balanced view.

I have volunteered many times at my local food bank and it's heartbreaking (and uplifting at the same time). Last week as I was arriving there was a woman leaving with her 5 year old son - he was over the moon with the fact that he now had access to a packet of rich tea biscuits, and was literally skipping down the road with excitement. I know the lady and she told me she hadn't eaten for 2 days as she needed to prioritise what food she had for her son. Believe me, they don't have a 4k tv at home!!

I really wish we didn't need food banks, but unfortunately (regardless of the politics), we do. Yes, you do get some people who will abuse the system, but that's life unfortunately.

Also wondering if you can pay on the day. And, is it ok for a 2 year old? Thanks.

Indeed,I never said some people weren't in need there must be some, I was commenting on the programmes I've watched and making an observation how the peeps shown would rather buy cigarettes than food.

You know, I believe that a proportion of people are freeloaders and prone to committing fraud given half an opportunity, greedy selfish and self-centred people. But I don't believe this proportion is any greater in benefits claimants than anybody else.

Not sure if you can pay on the day I can't find any info out regarding that.

This is what it says for Milton Keynes.

Unlike most other theme parks in the UK, Gulliver's caters especially for younger children. This means that if you are looking for great days out for toddlers and youngsters, then we are the park for you. We’re a family-run attraction, designed for families with children aged between 2 to 13. From the Runaway Train in Discovery Bay to the Jungle River Ride and classic Dodgems there are plenty of exciting rides to ensure that all the family have a fun day out. There are also a number of rides designed for the Under 5s, as well as shows!

I am trying to book and can't find the option of only £9 ?has anybody booked yet?

Found it on at Milton Keynes site ..

​Why does this happen in the UK though - a welfare state?

I took my 2 year old to the Matlock one in summer, only 2 rides she couldn't go on at all, some had to be with an adult and some on her own (its based on height) , 2 year old and 7 year old had a great time.
This price is a total bargain.

Have you ever stopped and wondered why those particular people on those shows are chosen?
Would you watch if it just showed a "normal" person trying to make ends meet and look for work?
No?
Didn't think so.

As the deal goes, it's very hot (and very worthwhile irrespective of what you watch on channel 5).

There are numerous answers / arguments / counter-arguments to this - none of which are of much use to the families I speak to.

Like I said, we shouldn't need food banks, but the welfare state is far from perfect.

Because "normal" people drink,smoke,waste money etc and still go to a food bank too I'm quite sure of that.

Anyway,we all have our differing opinions and this is very off topic now so I'll bid people good day.

Don't taint everyone with the same brush. Those ripping off the system can go to hell.

you might need a food bank one day

The whole point is just what you say there ARE genuine people and lots of children who are!! Well said. Let's not all be cynics.

Personally I'd prefer it if they asked a minimum donation of a few quid extra and said that extra money was being donated to a foodbank so they could buy food using bulk buying power. Experts could also work out what was needed most rather than the junk some people will palm off with this offer. Might be too bureaucratic though and easier to just transport food directly to the bank. I suspect it's better this way as it's driven home more visually about the plight of others when you physically have to grab food and bring it with you. Makes you appreciate you have spare money to travel and get in places like that. Hopefully Gullivers offer free tickets to each recipient of the food bank they donate this all to as well.

Like the people in Range Rover who use PDSA
