The Dangers of Salt Shakers - Again
Those of you who are regular readers may recall that I wrote in January about Rochadale Council trying to limit the amount of salt being shaken over fish and chips, by giving fish and chips shops five hole shakers (the normal number of holes is 17).
Well, they were but the vanguard in Nanny's salt shaker campaign. Seemingly at least six councils have ordered five-hole shakers, at our (council taxpayers') expense. These are being given away to chip shops and takeaways in their areas.
Drywite Ltd make the five hole shakers at £2 each. They have now received orders from at least five other councils, including Gateshead and Middlesbrough Council.
As one rather wise chippy owner said, it doesn't matter how many holes it has, people are going to put on as much salt as they want.
Additionally, why not save yourself the £2 and simply bung up some of the holes with sticky tape or glue?
Carol Ackerman, who runs Carol's Plaice in the suburb of Acklam, said:
"People will just put on more salt if they want more.
In fact, we have had some people unscrewing the lids to do so."
Another brilliant use of council taxpayer's money!
