Is it just me or was the Tories announcement about fat people "taking responsibility" a total contradiction when the Tories said they would oppose a traffic light scheme for food labelling ?
It strikes me that the Tories commission that came up with this report (a group chaired by the head of food company Unilever) have fallen for the supermarket and food manufacturers line that food labelling is bad. So no food traffic light labelling under the Tories, but an expectation that people should eat more sensibly.
How exactly will the Tories get people to eat more sensibly if traffic light labelling is not in place ? How do you get people to take responsibility when the government removes one of the very things that will make them more responsible ?
Confused ? I guess that's what happens when you let the food industry dictate your policies.
Whatever next from the Tories ? The head of BAE to come up with defence policy, the head of Vodafone to come up with a policy on phone masts ?
Same old Tories. Funded by big business, dictated to by big business and in the pocket of big business.
