Waistlines may need slimming down but, as this story from the BBC shows, so do the aspirations of today’s politicians:
“McDonalds are being accused of targeting unhealthy food at young people with plans for a bigger Big Mac. Liberal Democrat health spokesman Steve Webb is starting a petition in Parliament saying there is no need for the 40% bigger burger. ”
Mr. Webb, a simple soul who is obviously a little slow on the uptake apparently “spent the weekend” watching Morgan Spurlock’s notoriously disingenuous Super Size Me and, it seems, swallowed its message whole.
He would have done better to speak to Soso Whaley instead.
