The so-called ‘Health Lobby’ is under attack – but NOT by the gutter Press?

  It was of some surprise last Sunday, to read in a respected broadsheet newspaper, a major article attacking the Governments (some would say weak?) attempts to curtail the food industry’s continued flooding of Britain with unnecessarily over-sugared food and drink. It is hardly the responsible action of a major quality newspaper, to publish a […]

‘England a Nation of Shopkeepers’ – replaced by ‘Britain a Nation of Gluttony & Sloth’?

The UK is the Leader in Europe once again! Shame on us all! We are officially the most obese country in western Europe. [Obesity has tripled here over past 30 years, for god’s sake]. But how the hell has that disastrous situation come about, eh? Is it an illness epidemic? NO, but it is certainly […]

The ‘Universal Credit’ benefit, together with the rest of the UK’s welfare system, is a national disaster – TIME to start ditching the whole bloody lot?

The terminal state of the British welfare state is ample summed-up by the furore that has arisen daily in recent weeks both across the airways of TV, Radio & Newspapers, and at Westminster about the ‘Universal Credit’ benefit now being widely rolled-out across the UK, wouldn’t you say? The cries from far and wide are […]

Obesity in Children – disgraceful parental neglect?

This is a follow-up post to that titled ”Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?” which was published here last week. Those who have read the earlier post would know about the disastrous course for the Planet that mankind is set on regarding overpopulating it and into the bargain […]

Obesity in Adults – a life destroyer and a threat to Earth’s survival?

  There can be no doubt about it in anyone’s mind can there? There is an epidemic of obesity sweeping the World that is threatening our human existence with extinction and indeed survival of this very planet, isn’t there? The increasingly heavy burden on the world’s population imposed by obesity affects both rich and poor […]

The ANSWER to your weight problem – SOUP?

 verses   Many, many people struggle to control their weight, don’t they? Yep, sometimes they need to lose a few or more pounds and so embark on some kind of a ‘fad’ diet (mostly women though, as men are much more in denial about excessive weight, eh?). Other times, it is a matter of simply […]

Christmas is over for yet another year – but who’s Christmas was it though?

/>   In decades well gone by, Christmas (in Britain anyway) was about TWO things and those two things were ‘GOD’ and ‘CHILDREN’, weren’t they? Yes, and it was a time also when families made a big effort to get together to celebrate the event over the holiday period as well, didn’t they? Well, what has […]

The Christmas eating & drinking overindulgence is over, so it is now onto a New Year resolution to follow another Idiotic diet – will YOU be amongst them?

  It is that time of year when many people recognize that they have put on weight, isn’t it? Yep, men will find that their tea shirts are over tight and shirt buttons are straining, or their trouser waistband hook & bar won’t close – so they try to blame their wife for shrinking their […]

Traditional British bakery products – do YOU still ‘know’ about them?

 Bread? There are some wonderful iconic products that have been coming out of traditional bakeries in this Country for centuries, but nowadays many of us have seemingly forgotten about them, so the next generation won’t know a thing about them – let alone have ever enjoyed the taste, eh? Many families now have never even […]

England’s only now phasing out free plastic bags – a mammoth parliamentary scandal?

A week on Monday the English shoppers are in for a shock – albeit only a little shock for now though. The free re-usable plastic shopping bag is going to be compulsorily charged-for at 5 pence each – BUT only by the BIG-boy retailers. Oh yes, over the past fifty years the ‘single use’ ‘free’ […]
