Daily Mirror Backs Conservative’s Slug Eating Campaign

by | 27th, November 2008

BRIAN Reade, writing in the Mirror, says he “loves it when a Nice-But-Dim Tory reveals himself to be the kind of animal we always knew he was. One with the heart of a wolf and the brain of a slug.

“Take health spokesman Andrew Lansley who believes recession can be good for people because they will eat less.”

Reads muses: “If only the Tories had been around in 1845 when the Irish potato famine started…”

Granted the Tory Party had renamed itself as the Conservative Party by then, but the term “Tory” was still used in reference to them, just as it is now.

Reade is guilty of having his cake and eating it. But what about this ludicrous, crass and offensive point that spending less on food, and watching what you eat, can lead to a healthier you?

The Mirror reports:
