Nanny Hates Fast Food

As loyal readers are all too aware, Nanny really hates fast food.

Partly it's because it contains the ingredients that she has a bee in  her bonnet about; eg salt, sugar, fat, starch, trans fats etc etc.

You know, the sort of ingredients that to a greater or lesser extent are found in all foods!

That aside, the other issue that really "grinds Nanny's gears" is the fact that (in her view) a large amount of fast food is eaten by "the lower orders" (a part of society that Nanny rather despises and is, in her view, not capable of looking after itself).

Therefore, not content with the pasty tax (the House of Commons, rather ironically, serves taxpayer subsidised "unhealthy" pasties), Nanny has come with another wheeze designed to stamp out the "curse" of fast food in poorer areas.

Her solution?

She intends to bans fast food shops from operating in certain areas, and to ban them from being situated near to public (ie state) buildings!

Step forward Haringey Council, which is set to become the first in the UK to limit the number of pizza, burger and kebab shops on its streets in an attempt to improve the health of its poorest residents.

A draft scheme is in place for the restrictions which would see planning applications for venues considered alongside the need to keep the number of takeaways strictly limited. New outlets could also be banned from within 400 metres of schools, youth clubs and parks.

Tam Fry, of the National Obesity Forum and chair of the Child Growth Foundation (doubtless these quangos are all paid for by the taxpayer!) is of the view that fast food should be banned from anywhere around public buildings and particularly where children are involved (won't someone think of the children!!).

It is not the state's role to stop us eating what we want!

Those who choose to kill themselves by eating crap everyday, have the right to make that choice. Whilst those who are fit and healthy, who choose to indulge once in a while should not be restricted from that indulgence.

    All I'm going to say is just go and watch the South Park episode 'Kentucky Fried Chicken'. Even if you don't like South Park just watch it.

    Cutting down supply with the expectation of reducing demand is a daft concept that does not work.

    Any retailer knows that to get goods flying off the shelves, all that is needed is a rumour about shortage of supply.
    Every ‘must have’ toy at Christmas has been sold that way, with parents physically fighting to get their hands on a TellyTubby, Buzz Lightyear or Playstation.
    Only recently motorists were queuing for hours to put a few litres of fuel in their already full tanks.

    Personally, if I wanted to open a fast food shop close to a school in Haringey I would get my A5 license on the basis that I was going to sell ‘healthy’ vegetarian and vegan crap, lose money for a few weeks and then start selling the stuff that kids actually want to eat.

  4. The same page of MoS that announced this Nanny-ism, carried this-
    Big Macs, KFCs and takeaway pizzas are HEALTHIER than many NHS hospital meals
    75 per cent of NHS food contains more saturated fat than a Big Mac
    Campaigners want minimum standards introduced for hospital meal
