On the same news programme - Ken Clarke has been complaining about the removal of biscuits from cabinet meetings - he of all people does not need biscuits - in fact as a senior politician he should set an example by restraining his biscuit appetite! This is also Britain today - huge swathes of very overweight people, nay obese - costing the NHS millions in gastric bands - and other health problems due to overeating. I used to be amazed at the huge people in America - I mean HUGE. With a 'dunkin donut' cafe on every corner is it surprising?! But the UK is catching up.
I have a suggestion to make - when you buy a 2 for the price of 1 (biscuits for example) - donate the free packet to your local food bank. You will help feed a starving person and save yourself the extra calories by not eating the free packet.
