God help our British cousins. Christianity is nearly dead there, militant Islam is on the rise, they’ve lost pride in their once great culture, criminals have more rights than their victims and they’re creating a busybody nannystate that may be unsurpassed in the annals of human history,
Home cooks will also be told what size portions to prepare, taught to understand “best before” dates and urged to make more use of their freezers.
The door-to-door campaign, which starts tomorrow, will be funded by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP), a Government agency charged with reducing household waste.
The officials will be called “food champions”. However, they were dismissed last night as “food police” by critics who called the scheme an example of “excessive government nannying”.
In an initial seven-week trial, eight officials will call at 24,500 homes, dishing out advice and recipes. The officials, each of whom has received a day’s training, will paid up to :£8.49 an hour, with a bonus for working on Saturdays.
The pilot scheme, which will cost :£30,000, could be extended nationwide if it is seen as a success. If all 25 million households in the UK were visited in the same way, 8,000 officials would be required at a cost of tens of millions of pounds.
I thought having our government pick out which lightbulbs we can use was insane, but this is even worse. Imagine having your tax dollars go to some government drone whose job it is to come to your house so he can tell you how to micromanage what you cook in your kitchen.
The fact that the British government is nannying its people to this extent is disturbing not only because it’s such a gross overreach, but because it suggests that the average Brit is too stupid to understand how a “best before” date works. If it’s true, then again, God help our British cousins because no society full of people that stupid can possibly survive over the long haul. However, if it’s false — and I believe it is — then the British people should be horribly insulted and should vote the [email protected] responsible for this program out of office.
