All while eating a full eight-course meal, apparently.

No wait, I misread that - eighteen-course meal apparently.

How medieval.

Well, even worse considering that the surplus food on medieval festivities was given to the poor....

Is that a crab who wears glasses like Hairy Potter?

I don't really know how he managed to cock that story up so badly. Is it just because it's Gordon saying it?

Throwing away loads of food is a waste of money for people, and it's something that's relatively easy for people to fix. It's a pretty good green issue, generally it's a good idea but he's managed to put it across in a way that's pissed everyone off.

Politicians just don't get that lecturing requires authority.

What authority does a fat politician going for taxpayer-sponsored 18-course meals have on that issue? none.

I think British people don't like very preachy politicians in general. The other problem is that people probably feel there are more important issues for him to solve, than worry about the moldy carrot in our fridge - it's hardly the main reason for the downturn...

He's worried about the EU landfill fines I expect.

Heh, over here there was a story a year ago about a baker who was charged with additional VAT... for giving away unsold bread to the poor. He promptly went bankrupt.

G8 'fantasy' dessert?

I wonder if it's a black knight pudding with a double handed sword, or rather a blow job tiramisu, or OECD annual report with Crème Anglaise

Apparently it's a dessert made using an ingredient from each G8 country. That sounds very environmentally friendly!

That's why I insist my fat politicians only go to 17 course meals.

Why is no-one talking about how the number of gun deaths is down 13%? Sure, knife deaths are up in the big cities, but not by much more than the gun deaths are down, but according to the papers we're in the midst of knifeageddon.
