Controlling my GOODIES!!!


The Food Standards Agency wants manufacturers to cut the size of our chocolate bars. Didn't we have this a few years ago? From what I can remember, all of a sudden I couldn't buy a jumbo sized Mars bar anymore...

Now, I am a size 10 female. I eat sensibly and exercise regularly. Why do I have to suffer for fatties?

The FSA want the sizes reduced down to 50g! I don't do a Vicar of Dibley and have drawers full of crunchies, bounties and smallgeezers but, when I buy a Mars Bar, I expect to get a WHOLE ONE!

You can bet your life, they're not going to bring down the price!

New Labour doing what it does best, controlling the peasants....

    This just shows that the problem is the way the NHS is structured. i.e. the NHS is a financial incentive scheme to NOT look after your own health (as the "insurance" premium is based on your productivity, not your risk of ill-health).

  3. It's all so ridiculous. If someone wants to eat themselves silly, then let them. I don't see why everyone else has to suffer.

  4. > I don't see why everyone else has to suffer.

    When the NHS was created it effectively nationalised the bodies of everyone in the country. The government is just maximising the tax it can extort from the workers it owns.

  6. The NHS was meant as an insurance scheme whereby you paid into the system, to get something out when you needed it. If people don't pay into it, they shouldn't get anything out of it...

    It cannot be an assumptive right!

    Those that don't pay into it, should have to rely on charity.

  7. The fatties can get "bumper packs"... :)

  8. What you pay in must be adjusted according to what your health risk is for it to be insurance.

    A better scheme than the NHS would be for people to buy catastrophic insurance so they can buy their own care and for the insurance to be subsidised up-to the level of a healthy person (of that age and sex).

    But it never actually was, was it? The money started going straight out pretty much as soon as it came in. NI robbed Peter to pay Paul from the beginning

    As for the FSA dictating what size choccies sweet makers can produce and people can buy, they should be viciously sodomized with extra large Toblerones that have been hardened up in the freezer for a few hours. Bastards.
