Cadbury criticised for selling variety box containing just eight biscuits

Sugary drinks banned from sale in NHS hospitals from July

So, we reducing sugar intake or not? And are’t people arguing for a sugar tax to do so? You know, people eat less of more expensive things?

  1. The sort of girls who write for the major newspapers probably had a dream involving some sort of Prince Charming whisking them away to a happy life with three adorable blond children in a nice house in the Cotswolds. Instead they are stuck in an office and their dreams have withered into bitter rage. So they lash out. It doesn’t matter what the issue is. The important thing is that the man who slept with them last month didn’t even bother to text back and now everyone is going to pay!

    Also of course, they are on the chunky side. So they know that the NHS thing is meaningless virtue signalling inflicted on everyone else. While not having enough chocolate biscuits late at night while they are binging watching Mad Men is a crime against humanity.

  2. Major newspapers give the bitter rage the punters expect when they buy the paper, tis the same for blogs.

    If you pop over to Frank Davis ( banging on about the smoking ban) blog you can read bitter rage daily for a decade about the smoking ban, he has a small cult following who have found out smoking is harmless and good for you..

    Sugar tax gets a lot of rage too in blogland, I’m all for the sugar tax with the proceeds funding free dog shit bags for dog owners.

    Family Circle biscuits for xmas presents…..whats all that about….its nasty.

  3. Rickie:

    If you like tin gods organising your lifestyle piss off and join one of the blogs that cater to stooges like you.

  4. It’s a sign that our entire culture is going mad. Demanding insane things then complaining about the obvious consequences.

  5. Mr Ecks….thats the sort of line You can expect from the outraged….”organising your lifestyle”….the smoking ban has been and gone and 14 million in this country did nowt about it.

    Organising your lifestlye…good god man.

  6. You appear to approve of people being told how to live by “authority” Rickie.

    And anyone who doesn’t care for that is a bitter cultist.

    The fact that there are far too many crawling arse-kissers in the human race in general is something worth being bitter about. Evil thrives on the backs of crawling dogs.

  7. How to live , organising my lifestyle…for crying out loud…..no authority has made me do anything.

    You appear to not to give any thought to advantages of the authorities looking into “sugar”…..perhaps the authorities should have kept quite about the dangers of smoking cos it might have upset someone.

    My preferred option is sugar tax income gets used for a specific project….you know 5p on a Monster energy can drink which makes kids have heart palpitations and use it to employ people to clean streets.

  8. And my preferred option is Piss on the Sugar tax and all those who support it.

    If an accurate knowledge could be achieved of the names etc of all its supporters I’d be happy to see large sums of cash taken out of their pockets and spent on street cleaning.

    And indeed I would be even happier to see all those who endorse state coercion of private choice obliged to spend the majority of their free time sweeping said streets Dubcek-style–whether they care to or not. For the good of society.

  9. “You appear to not to give any thought to advantages of the authorities looking into “sugar”…..perhaps the authorities should have kept quite about the dangers of smoking cos it might have upset someone.”

    This just in . . . sugar is not smoking.

    “Authorities looking into “sugar.”” Can I get a “Sig, Heil” with that?

    “Authorities looking into “sugar.”

    I object to your crass, ill thought out remarks. I happen to count divination among my many hobbies and interests, and I can assure you that this practice improves upon the age old practice of reading tea leaves by providing social and economic context to the reading, allowing the practitioner to help steer their client towards better, more inclusionary actions.

    Also ‘sieg’ [/pendantry].

  11. Cadbury criticised for selling variety box containing just eight biscuits

    Based on the box I share their concern.

    They’ve been conned, box shows Seven biscuits, but contains Eight.

    Very misleading, a Free extra chocolate biscuit is a horrendous scam.

    Are ritchie & his lawyer pal on the case?
