It’s curious how the BBC treats some stories. Take the one which suggests that lives in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland could be saved IF people adopted a more “English diet”. Cue disgruntled Scottish Professor to inform is how superior Scottish diet was and that it was only because of the economic disadvantage in Scotland that prevented “working class” people enjoying a better diet. Later on, I tuned into the Nolan Show on BBC NI, and he was running the idea that it is because of our unemployment and “social deprivation” that caused diets to be poor. There was a suggestion that “the poor” needed perhaps special locations where they could buy cheaper food and fruit – maybe the Government should open supermarkets for those on Welfare? Amazing Statist stuff – and all served up without any dissent.
