Plebs Getting Spoilt - Government Acts

Eat shoots and leaves - but in the right order - Scotsman.com News
RHUBARB is in and strawberries are out. Scots would only tuck into "in season" produce under the latest plans to transform the nation's health and eating habits.
Dubbed "Eat In Season", the government hopes it will lead to people eating better food, saving money and adopting a more "sustainable" lifestyle choice.
The government believes shoppers have become spoiled by supermarkets shipping in all kinds of meat, fish, fruit and vegetables all year round.


Haggis, 'neeps and porridge only until August then.

Fortunately deep-fried, battered Mars Bars are in season all year round.

Slightly more seriously, why the chuff is the government wasting our money trying to tell the Scots, of all people, how to save money.

Dear God! With every passing day I become more convinced that reform is impossible and the only solution is to tear down the entire corrupt edifice and start again.

"Dubbed 'Eat In Season', the government hopes it will lead to people eating better food, saving money and adopting a more "sustainable" lifestyle choice."

Better food.

Right.

Like the average Scottish diet 100 years ago...
