Well it had to happen, not content with moaning about salt, sugar, fat...you name it...Nanny has launched a withering tirade on the humble sarnie (sandwich for the non Brits reading this).
It seems that some sort of test, doubtless very "scientific", was carried out by some sort of "interested" group (ie partisan, anti salt) into the salt contents of a range of sandwiches.
They found that sandwiches contain salt.
Well of course they farking do...salt adds flavour...nit wits!
Anyhoo, the worst offender on the range of sarnies that were tested was the Pret A Manger "All Day Breakfast" (note Pret and I have some issues re their Heathrow outlet). Seemingly this evil sarnie contains the salt equivalent of a Siberian salt mine, or 7 bags of crisps (and we all know how much Nanny hates crisps, don't we children?).
The astute amongst you may observe the title of the evil sarnie..."All Day Breakfast".
In other words it contains; bacon, sausage, egg, tomato etc...therefore of course it is going to be salty, and hardly likely to be chosen on a daily basis by someone on a diet who is concerned about all matters of health.
It's a treat, not a way of life.
The trouble with Nanny is that she refuses to distinguish between a one off indulgence, and a thrice daily ritual. All Nanny wants to do is to remove every last vestige of pleasure from our lives, and make the world a drab grey place.
As to the salt content of the sarnie...do I give a fark?
No I don't.
My suggestion is that we all stick two fingers up to Nanny and go and buy as many of these evil sarnies as possible (but I don't like Pret!), therefore make your own...and remember to add lots of salt for added flavour.
Nanny really needs to get a life!
