After a couple of weeks of derange rants The Sun went quiet on the "nanny state and junk food" but it's obviously time for another go:
THE SUN SAYS Any Tory leader must kill off the nanny state brigade’s snobby war on treats
Do they really think kids are seduced by the wrapper? D’oh! It’s the taste....
I imagine there is multi-billion pound branding and marketing industry that'll disagree with that statement.
ANY new Tory leader must kill off the nanny state brigade’s snobby war on treats.
George Osborne’s fizzy drink tax was idiotic enough. What has that achieved?
Yes, some manufacturers cut sugar and wrecked their drinks. Brilliant.
Is anyone even an ounce slimmer? If not, what was the point?
The Sun predicted the health zealots would not stop there, whether they succeeded or not.
Now these new Puritans want punitive taxes on sweets and crisps too — and plain packaging, supposedly to make them less enticing.
Do they really think kids are seduced by the wrapper? D’oh! It’s the taste, as Christopher Snowdon says on this page.
And here’s a handy solution for parents facing “pester power”: Just say No.
Which goes equally for aspiring Tory Prime Ministers browbeaten by centre-left “public health” meddlers obsessed with bullying and fleecing the low-paid as a weapon against obesity.
The Tories have swallowed their junk ideas far too long.
DONALD Trump has the measure of Corbyn.
Never has Labour’s leader looked less like a PM-in-waiting than yesterday.
Despite repeatedly insulting the US President and snubbing his State dinner, Corbyn secretly begged to meet him. Rejected, he slunk off to an anti-Trump demo to make a “speech” that must have had even his staunchest supporters dying with embarrassment.
At tedious length he barked his stock list of leftie gripes, never troubling himself to offer solutions. But that’s all Corbyn is... a career protester, only truly at home when ranting to cheering socialists as angry and dim as he is.
A small, dreary figure who rails against “hate” despite his entire movement being fuelled by it (as sniggering Corbynistas chanting “Nazi” later proved after finding a Trump supporter to attack).
He is a man who denounces racism while blind to his own. Who abuses the President to excite his fanbase, with no regard for the relationship between our great nations, so vital to the free world.
Trump is right: Corbyn is a “negative force” for Britain. We pray voters never have to find it out the hard way.
