I saw some git on the BBC this morning suggesting we need a tax on chocolate to save us from getting fat. He called it a “dangerous addiction for some”.
Then I found this via Mark Wadsworth.
Their glossy cookbooks contain recipes loaded with “bad” saturated fats linked to heart disease, strokes and obesity.
A report unveiled today by The Fat Panel – an independent group of experts – shows that just one serving of some of their dishes contains more than the recommended daily limit of the fats.
Click on Ms Lawson or Mr Stein’s websites above and answer me a question. Does either look morbidly obese or unhealthy? In fact “food criminal” in chief Ms Lawson looks positively um… er… radiant. If there is a problem with tubbies it’s due to “Mums going to Iceland” and buying cheap junk food all the time for the kiddies. And not folks buying cook books written by the likes of Stein, Lawson or Ramsey. And if there is a problem it is caused by poverty because it costs to eat well. And poverty is solved by a good economy and a good economy is generated by freeing those who create wealth but this is not the time or the place for the usual libertarian diatribe on taxes and regulations…
A further question I would like to pose is what’s the odds “The Fat Panel” are a fake charity? I tried the charities commisiion but got nowhere but I shall owe you a deep-fried lard pie if you can show me they are genuine. And if they are fake (and they stink of it) then should gubbermint show an example and send the likes of Gordon and Jacqui to fat-camp or better yet the bacon-slicer?
I was going to suggest a visit from “Dr” Gillian McKeith
but the idea of watching Brown get colonic irrigation on Channel 4 is too hideous to contemplate.
Hope you enjoy lunch!
