Chancellor Rishi Sunak has been barred for life from a pub in his constituency over his decision to vote against providing free meals to eligible school children during the half-term holidays.
Mr Sunak and three other northern Tory MPs – Jacob Young, Simon Clarke and Matt Vicker – have been told to never enter the ‘Mill & Il Mulino’ in Stokesley, North Yorkshire after they all voted against extending the free school meals scheme on Wednesday.
In a post on Facebook, the restaurant wrote: “The government voted against extending free school meals. This is disgusting! What’s worse Matt Vickers MP Simon Clarke MP & Jacob Young – MP for Redcar & Cleveland Rishi Sunak all voted against the scheme. DISGUSTING!
“All 4 are now barred from The Mill & Il Mulino for life. I don’t want there business (sic).”
The restaurant also shared a screen shot of a food menu for the House of Commons, which shows the price of meals – including a sirloin steak and chips for just £11.77 – which are subsidised by the taxpayer.
