Food on Friday ~ Snack Tax

don’t do as I do, do as I say

eat algae instead of traditional roast beef

Here in roast beef and Yorkshire pudding scoffing England, where a salad is something you feed to your pet rabbit, the woke government has come up with the brilliant idea that they should stop us from consuming so much sugar and salt.  So; the gluttonous, obtuse, lazy, deceitful, slothful, self-important, public school and Oxford educated Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked one of his old school chums to write a report justifying a new set of taxes on fat people.

The fat and self-important, Old Etonian Henry Dimbleby was appointed Government Food Advisor.  His National Food Strategy calls for a new tax of £6 a kilo on salt and £3 a kilo on sugar, (a kilo is 2.2 lbs in real money).  Lots of sugar and salt go into snacks, canned food, cakes, bread, biscuits, cookies, pizzas, prepared meals, burgers, candy, and junk food.  (Coincidentally Dimbleby owns the ultra woke incredibly green Leon fast food chain, which serves unhealthy very expensive very fashionable crap.)

These new taxes would cost the average English family an extra £250 a year on food.  For example, I don’t eat Nutella, but if I did a jar would go up from about £4.75 to about £6.00.  FFS!

A couple of fat Dimbleby’s other ideas are that we poor should eat algae-based foods and that exercise is a waste of time.

Unsurprisingly these ideas have not attracted much approval ~ in fact the popular press has been condemnatory in their derision.

Unsurprisingly fat Boris has distanced himself from the whole mess.

For the time being the idea of taxing the less well-off for wanting to eat tasty food has been kicked into the long grass.

But, given this left-liberal government’s rabid desire to interfere in the lives of everybody, I expect all of these taxes and regulations to sneak back by stealth.  In the not too distant future.

Christmas? Bah Humbug

the Ghost of Christmas Present haunts the land

The British Government is tying itself in knots over what to do about their conflicting views on the coronavirus and Christmas.  On the one hand are the doom and gloom merchants who would prefer that Christmas was cancelled this year, or moved to midsummer day, or just done away with altogether.  Chief of these Scrooges is an unattractive drone called Chris Whitty, who has this witty catchphrase for his idea of a proper Christmas; ‘keep it small, keep it short, keep it local…..’  What a charmless, overpaid wazzock that person is.

People of his ilk have obviously got to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, because his latest soundbite is; ‘Have yourself a merry little Christmas.  And this year sadly I do mean little…..’  At least he has promised that he would not be cancelling Christmas.  Whereas in the People’s Democratic Government of Wales, anyone having a good time will most likely get arrested.

Actually, it doesn’t matter what anyone in the government says because a hell of a lot of people will just ignore the official ‘advice’ and get on with their own Christmas as best they can.

Unfortunately my Christmas plans have been totally canned, since British Airways stopped me from going to Cancun.  I’ll be alone again over the holidays.

I hope nobody gives an order to stop Christmas shooting down Santa
