There's fat chance of Britain's disgusting army of lard-a*ses slimming down voluntarily so let's bring back rationing and make them trade coupons for calories

One of the worse insults in the English language does not involve race, sexual proficiency or lack of brainpower.

This insult causes outrage - it's almost as toxic as the N word.

Dare to describe someone as FAT and you stand accused of body shaming, a lack of empathy, a philistine mindset.

......

The medical profession has become so frightened of causing offence that they've banned using the word 'fat' and turned to the softer term 'obese' as a way of describing the blubber we're carrying round, wrecking our knees, clogging up our arteries and devastating our hearts.
Let's go back to rationing - once a month a book of coupons could be mailed out to every member of the population.

It would contain coupons for the purchase of evil foods like pizzas, biscuits, cakes, chocolate, crisps and full fat dairy products, sugar and fizzy drinks.

We would have to use our money, accompanied by a coupon permit to purchase the offending items in strictly regulated amounts.

Of course it could lead to a black market, to trading and bartering, but it's a lot easier to enforce than 'asking' food manufacturers to cut portions and trim off calories when all they are interested in in profit.

Look back at pictures of our great grandparents and their children- not a fattie in sight in the early 1950's. People were wiry, trim and walked everywhere.

Yet they ate white bread, potatoes, used sugar, drank beer, smoked and loved cakes on Saturdays and Sundays. They had known deprivation during the war, and rationing was a way of life - they were resourceful, no matter how poor.

I grew up in a working class home with an outside toilet and two parents who had left school at 14. We were all thin.

Food was basic, but nutritious, even if my mother always overcooked green vegetables.

So bring back rationing and stop feeling sorry for overweight food addicts.

It's time to shame them off their very large backsides.

Now, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) wants doctors to adopt a tone that is 'respectful and non-judgmental'.

That's like telling an alcoholic 'ok go right ahead and drink yourself to death'.
No it isn't. Why do so many people not understand that there's a middle ground between not doing anything about public health ever and calling everyone who doesn't fit into 28 inch jeans a disgusting fat mess?

Also pretty standard 'fuck your evidence base, here's what I reckon'.

A few years ago her name appeared on a "just pull yourself together" piece on depression, that got her some criticism, but actually came from the pen of Dacre. But yeah, whenever she's on TV it's fairly clear that she's pretty awful by herself.

But am I right thinking she use to be 'alright'? Always been gobby and a bit of "just saying what others are thinking" type but I do seem to remember her being reasonably fair some time ago. Now she's just a cunt doing Dacre's bidding for him. Or has she always been like that? Can't say I've exactly followed her career closely.

Janet jumps on the dildo bandwagon:



JANET STREET-PORTER: I'm sorry Sainsbury's but the last unexpected item I want to find in my bagging area is a dildo
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... dildo.html


Then don't buy one and get on with your day?



Sex is everywhere these days- get on a train or a bus and you'll get a glimpse of writhing flesh on a fellow passenger's phone. Middle aged businessmen sit hunched over their laptops on long distance train journeys, watching porn on the free wifi, pretending they are looking at spread sheets and writing important emails.

No Janet. I'd be willing to bet you have never ever seen any of these things in your entire life. You're simply parroting Vine's column from yesterday and trying to turn anecdotes into cast-iron 'state of the modern world' fact. Classic Daily Mail.

How could they do it? My local branch of J Sainsbury is reliable and friendly, packed with pensioners taking their grandchildren for chips in the café and a big bag of sweets.

Now, safe (and - let's be honest- boring) J Sainsbury have decided to 'move' with the times and get on board the Fifty Shades bandwagon.

Sainsbury was always reassuringly middle class and safe - certainly not somewhere I'd encounter a dildo at the checkout.

Forget dinky sprouts, miniature new potatoes, and (this is as exciting as it gets in the Sainsbury grocery department) Rose Harissa for a Moroccan inspired stew, discriminating shoppers can now purchase a pulsating plastic gizmo designed to bring women to orgasm in record time.

You could opt for the Rose Gold Bullet at £8, which operates at 7 different speeds or splash out and spend £15 on the Aura Silver Vibrator, described as 'suitable for couples'.

In our gender-fluid world, exactly where this large silvery bomb-shaped device might be inserted is left to the imagination - in fact, it looks a little bit like a lava lamp.

I had no idea the store's directors were more interested in spicing up my love life than my curries.

Unlike over-priced smug Waitrose (where you can get over 50 kinds of designer tea, red chicory and wild rice), Sainsbury customers want value for money, no frills and a decent choice.

The 'gourmet ingredients' section sometimes seems a bit of an afterthought, but the oaty biscuits from the gluten-free range are delicious and there's a decent choice of wine under a tenner.

My only gripe has been their obsession with rearranging the shop floor. From August, Halloween costumes and Christmas crackers are on display alongside sun tan lotion, even though the festive season is months away.

We have to navigate around special offers - bins of cheap stain removing powder, and piles of barbecues the minute the sun pokes out.

Every week, the layout goes through a massive re-design, kitchenware and cleaning products swap places, yoghurt migrates to the end of aisle D and (without any warning) toilet rolls get moved next to wine.

There is some kind of mad logic emanating from mission control at Sainsbury HQ - but in spite of these hurdles, my weekly shop is accomplished with the minimum of fuss. I wish they would hand out maps of the new layout, but at least it means I can chat to a personable young man and ask for help.

Why does Sainsbury need to flog us dildos? It's not like there's a crying need, you can't go online without being inundated with ads for the things.

There are Ann Summers shops up and down the country and even Poundland sells a vibrator for £1 - although it doesn't offer all the speeds of the pearly pinky gold Sainsbury bullet.

Sex is everywhere these days- get on a train or a bus and you'll get a glimpse of writhing flesh on a fellow passenger's phone. Middle aged businessmen sit hunched over their laptops on long distance train journeys, watching porn on the free wifi, pretending they are looking at spread sheets and writing important emails.

They are not fooling me. I want free internet access on public transport to have every porn site blocked. And we wonder why young men are obsessed with porn - and supermarkets are selling vibrators alongside cake mix.

Buying a dildo doesn't mean your sex life will improve, in spite of the laughable claim from the J Sainsbury boss that purchasing a pink plastic bullet shaped object will 'increase the nation's sense of well-being'.

He said 'we want to help our customers live well for less'. That implies that choosing a vibrator is just like choosing a burger or a chipolata sausage, opting for a stuffed chicken over a pack of meaty thighs.

The store says 'by introducing a new range at affordable prices, we hope to give customers the option to buy quickly and conveniently in an environment they feel comfortable with'.

Every single part of that statement is laughable. How many men or women would feel comfortable saying 'I'm just popping down to Sainsbury for a vibrator?'

Or feel comfortable popping it onto the conveyor belt at the check-out.

Is a sex toy really top of our priorities - when what we want is lower grocery bills?

Online, the Sainsbury web site seems a little confused, offering the chance to 'buy sexual enhancement and toys with the same great quality, freshness and choice you'd find in store'…and you can book a one hour delivery slot. What happens if your choice is not available? Will we have to discuss substitutions with the delivery person?

Sainsbury say that one in three Brits are not happy with their sex lives - was it ever any different? Why does a grocery store need to morph into a relationship expert? Why do they think a vibrator is the answer to every woman's prayer?

The people who stand to lose most from this misjudged sales initiative are men. Once women realize that a vibrator with seven speeds doesn't snore, doesn't roll over and fall asleep after a couple of minutes' activity, doesn't fizzle out (especially if you have a decent supply of batteries) and doesn't ask if you've put on weight, they will be marching off the shelves.

Sainsbury might think they are being helpful, but in fact the reverse is true. Once Vibrators are as common as fish fingers and frozen peas, the writing is on the wall for men. In future, they will have limited use as sperm banks.

You have been warned.
