The Corner

The one and only.



No, not in France, but in the UK. The latest folly from Tony Blair’s government is a proposal to ban certain foods from being advertised alongside TV programs that “the Children” like to watch (such as, um, “The Simpsons,” I note, Jonah). These include Camembert, raisins, sultanas, peanut butter,and olive oil.

The full list can be seen here.

And if any people still think that the “war against obesity” is to do with much more than the urge to boss other people around they are, I suspect, as delusional as those who truly believe that Camembert should be treated like a “junk” food.
