Wartime food rationing should be brought back as a way of beating the battle against obesity, a senior MSP has claimed.And this isn't just idle speculation on the part of the SNP politician:
Holyrood health committee convenor Roseanna Cunningham claims a return to austere wartime portions and recipes would be a radical way of trimming the nation’s waistline.
But while Miss Cunningham admitted there would be uproar at the state controlling people’s food intake, she insisted the idea should be taken seriously.And she does:
“You can’t go in and police people’s fridges and cupboards – not yet anyway,” she said.Perhaps this is already happening. Maybe that's why the police never seem to have time to deal with - what was it called? - crime. Are they policing our fridges? Miss Cunningham's party claims to want independence for Scotland, but certainly not for its people. Scumbags.
(UPDATE: Apparently she was misquoted.)
