This Tweet was sent after Casualty recently covered malnutrition caused by benefit sanctioning.

Mark Winn has reportedly since deleted his Twitter account after the backlash it caused.

    I saw the episode of Casualty he was referring to and I was very impressed with the way the storyline was approached. Can not say the same for this councillor…………..

    I agree with Kate, the storyline was portrayed in a way to show how this is can and does happen to some families and Councillor Mark Winn who seems to be totally out of touch with the real world as are many of his Tory party compadres. Not everybody who have to use food banks can be categorised into these groups it’s very unfair for him to generalise not knowing the true facts.
