We’ve probably got enough government now they’re rationing chips

WE’VE definitely got enough government when they can nick £30 million off us to fund people to tell us to order fewer chips with our meals.

Restaurant customers ought to order smaller plates of chips, the Government’s recycling advisers have declared.

They say that too many people leave cold fried potatoes uneaten on their plates – and as a result hundreds of thousands of tons of food waste each year have to be dumped by pubs, restaurants and fast food chains.

They called for waiters to be trained to tell customers they ought to have less chips, and for ‘stealth menus’ designed to encourage diners to go for lighter meals.

The campaign against chips was launched by the Waste and Resources Action Programme, a £30million-a-year quango set up to encourage more recycling.

Fire them, burn the building to the ground and plough the land with salt so they can never come back.

Quite apart from the stupidity of grown adults trying to tell other grown adults such things they’re supposed to be encouraging us into recycling. And we’ve had for centuries a very efficient method of recycling food scraps. Feed ’em to the pigs. Except that’s now been banned, you can’t feed swill to them any more. Despite the fact that they love it and we’ve gothundreds of thousands of tonnes of stuff that could be used to make bacon.

‘Mmmm. Bacon.

So yes, we’ve definitely got too much government and really ought to be cutting back on it.
