What joy that our world contains such idiots

But nothing had happened, he claimed. \”Where is the responsibility there?\” he asked, saying that it seemed to be \”a perfect example of the lack of enforcement in a voluntary approach\”.

  1. @SE, I think it probably can be done. What will these people do once the lower orders are sipping mineral water and slowly chewing on tofu? Except worrying about the fact there is no longer anything to distinguish the lower orders from right-thinking left-leaners?

  2. James,

    No – you are confusing the effect with the process. As per the Diane “will she never effing shut up” Abbott thread, yesterday, it is the process that is fundamentally important – the actual effect may be selected from a wide range of “right-on” desireabilities but it is the (presumably sexually deviant) thrill of the state empowered domination that they are actually after.

    “I’m important and you have to do what I tell you to …” See Gore, Abbott, Porritt, Prof David Begg, 2-Jags, etc, etc.

  3. But the process is bearing fruit. BK in England now tastes distinctly different to that anywhere else in Europe because of the lack of salt. No different laws, that was the outcome of sofa government, voluntary stitch-ups with the easy targets.

    Take it to its logical conclusion, though I doubt any of the lecturers object to calorific bombs in posh restaurants. It’s more to do with it being supposedly organically hand made, rather than admitting to being made by the megaton in a factory next to the M5, even if the sucrose content is the same or even higher.

  4. Or you’ve got older and Britain’s got younger (compared to you). Think about it.

    Moving to the UK after 25 years abroad, the reports I hear is that inspectors can very well be negotiated with, and mainly interested in helping businesses to get up to speed on regulations… and a lot of regulations make sense, especially to the younger generation.

    But that 1.52 metres does sound crazy. Did you call their bluff? Bet they’d have backed down.

    There have been complaints that recipes by Nigella Lawson et all contain more [evil stuff] than cheap microwave meals, so I wouldn’t be surprised if the restaurants are next.

  6. “Volunteering” is this year’s word whose meaning will be inverted by the Left. It now means forcing people to do things.

  7. I utterly loathe self-appointed guardian bastards like Charlie Powell. Even if his desire to interfere, uninvited in other people’s lives was based on sound information I’d still loathe him, but his campaign is based on ignorance and prejudices.

    Numerous studies suggest that being in the overweight category is healthiest and that being mildly obese (BMI 30-35) carries no more risk than being supposedly normal. The morbidly obese are at increased risk but they represent a very much smaller proportion of the population than the combined overweight and obese categories being targeted by the nannyistas.

    Set up fake charities to hoover up funds in order to highlight how miserable the lives of the lower orders are?
