Logic folks, logic

The National Food Service is a new public service, built by and for the communities that it serves. Our aim is to eliminate food insecurity and tackle the interconnected issues of social isolation and food waste. We are building a National Food Service right now, with communities across the country stretching from Glasgow to Falmouth. This network of initiatives are providing proof that a National Food Service is possible if we connect. The growth of a grassroots National Food Service will be the seed for bigger change.

If it’s grassroots and voluntary then it’s not a national service in the sense of the NHS now, is it? Might well be more effective than the NHS but that’s another matter.

  1. The National Food Service is a new public service, built by and for the communities that it serves.

    Imma call bollocks on this one, the communities are already served by KFC and Big Mo’s Chicken & Kebab Shop – stuff proles like me actually want to eat.

    Imagine a social eating space in every street and high-rise made by people from all backgrounds, created in common.

    I’m imagining this and it sounds pretty fucking awful tbf.

    Around the dinner table barriers are broken down and real change is made

    Now I’m imagining some earnestly bespectacled Guardian reader getting his gaily waxed hipster stache torn out by some feral yoofs because he wanted to talk down to them about veganism and toxic masculinity. Feels good, man.

    “Eating together is probably the most important way we build friendships. So a National Food Service would do more for our collective happiness and wellbeing, not to mention our health, than anything else we might think of doing.”

    Only a twatademic who has never been to Nandos could believe this.

    The network first started in 2018 in the face of a climate emergency declaration

    Because of course it did.

    over 3m people are currently going hungry in the UK

    Are they fuck. Where are these 3 million skinny people?

    public services are being actively dismantled

  2. It’s voluntary and private now.

    Next thing, they’ll be getting a research council grant to develop the idea further. After that, some quasi-socialists in the blue or red team will be nudging that way, and pretty soon, it’s how we do things.

    Find the ringleaders and put Steve’s lions to work. That’s their aim: the state running all the food.

  3. Combine creation with destruction–the Chowdown UN are joined at the table by the crack team from Longleat with The Ghost and The Darkness as centre forwards so to speak.

    Lot more fun and laughs than football and over much quicker.

  4. ‘ Imagine a social eating space in every street and high-rise made by people from all backgrounds, created in common.’

    Don’t we already have these – street parties, BBQs, and, er, restaurants?

  6. TMB–What a POS that “Covenant” is. BlueLabour smeg smeared over one or two conservative ideas like a few solid good old thre’penny bits in a pudding cloth filled with shite. Migration amnesty shows the real score. Fuckwit scum.

    Welcome to the National Lion Service. I believe it was Somerset Mug’em who talked about somebody he didn’t like as resembling something scraped out from the claws of a Lion.

    Lets hope plenty of political scum–and esp BlueLab scum –will soon be in exactly that state.

  7. Dennis, He of the Consistent Panda Bear Shape

    Next thing, they’ll be getting a research council grant to develop the idea further.

    Research grant? Cue the entrance of a Chartered Accountant from Ely who has clearly never missed a meal in his life.

  8. “The growth of an AstroTurf National Food Service will be the seed for bigger change.”

    Fixed it.

  9. “Imagine a social eating space in every street” Just like the British Restaurants of he 1940s

  10. The Meissen Bison

    DotCPBS:a Chartered Accountant from Ely who has clearly never missed a meal in his life

    It’s not by skimping on the scoff that you get to be Lord of the Pies!

  11. “Imagine a social eating space in every street and high-rise made by people from all backgrounds, created in common.”

    I don’t need to imagine it, it’s there outside my window. The Whistling Kettle where I’m dying to go for a Full English, but has been locked down. The SubWay where other people can choose to get a sandwich, but has been locked down. The ‘Spoons where only the turrists go. Royal Fisheries, which has been locked down. The George which has been locked down. The Pie & Mash which has been locked down.

  12. Pertinant to another bit of my town’s history:

    “…every hundred houses in a street had each its own fire for cooking, and that at least a hundred human beings were engaged in serving meals that could have been prepared by half a dozen”

    Before around 1900-ish households in Whitby did indeed use the communal baker for their cooking, as people were too poor to have anything in their hovels other than a place to sleep. Vis “Bakehouse Yard” and “Old Bakehouse Yard” and “The Bakehouse” being local street names. It was an expression of increasing prosperity to be able to afford to cook a larger variety of foods at home with newfangled equipment that didn’t require continuous a fire to keep going.

    This chap is *aspiring* to return people to poverty.

  13. The ‘National Food Service’ is an expression of almost unbelievable cuntishness. TBH lions are too good for them. They’ll give the poor things indigestion.

  14. If you read up about the great communist experiment in the USSR, communal cooking and eating facilities were universally reviled.

    The idea has been tried, and has failed. But, I suppose, it wasn’t “real” socialism.

  15. “Imagine a social eating space in every street”

    You mean like local councils do their best to stop, when restaurants want to put tables outside?

  16. Around the dinner table barriers are broken down and real change is made……“Eating together is probably the most important way we build friendships. So a National Food Service would do more for our collective happiness and wellbeing, not to mention our health, than anything else we might think of doing.”

    I can’t see either the Board of Deputies or the Muslim Council of Britain being on board with this.
    One of the main purposes of both kosher and halal rules is so that Jews and Muslims don’t share meals with unclean creatures like the Brits, otherwise they might realise that we’re not subhuman filth after all, and we can’t have that can we?

  17. ‘Our aim is to eliminate food insecurity’

    ‘Food insecurity’ is a Lefty invention to get you to accept their taking over your food supply. Millions will die.

    They want control of your water supply, too. “Water insecurity” is an attack on your water supply.

    ‘and tackle the interconnected issues of social isolation and food waste.’

    They are only connected in that they are also totalist language to get you to accept their taking over.

    ‘We are building a National Food Service right now, with communities across the country stretching from Glasgow to Falmouth. This network of initiatives are providing proof that a National Food Service is possible if we connect.’

    “Our building a National Food Service is proof that a National Food Service can be built.”

    Wut?

  18. Communal eating facilities:

    Back in early 1970s parents took us to Austria for ski-ing holiday. First night in hotel we went to dining room

    Waiter: join this table
    Me: Dad, no way, it’s like school
    Mum: No way
    Dad: No, we want our own table, get your manager
    Manager: Harrumph, come back in 30 minutes
    Lots of muttering about British…

  19. Interesting, Pcar. On my European vacation 25+ years ago, the ONLY place the people were inhospitabable was Bregenz, Austria. I could see in their eyes that they didn’t want me there. Austrian border guards seemed stuffy, too.

    The French were strange, but hospitable. Rest of the countries I went to, people were all nice, friendly and helpful.

  20. @Gamecock

    They were hospitable, but we weren’t commies

    British were meant to be European in 1970s, but we didn’t want to adopt their culture. We ate out in hotels frequently and never shared a table, not going to change for furrin commies when we’re paying

    Previous years Swiss ski holiday had no commie nonsense
