Smaller biscuits, same price no doubt.
I wonder how long before we have rationing?

Isn't there anything too trivial for the government to poke their noses into?
The 'pasty tax' didnt get a good reception so now they try something else.

Trouble is with this guy is that he is a UKIP Euro MP who earns a fortune in his role, does and says nothing constructive and represents a party hell bent on leaving the EU.

Talk about having your 'cake' and eating it.

What twaddle, if anything wants doing in the biscuit business it's banning trans-fats.

He always manages to sounds exactly like the bloke in the pub who has had a few pints without actually having a few pints (I 'm assuming...)

People will just buy more biscuits to make up for the short fall.

Or they may just eat less? They may be as happy having 3 smaller biscuits as 3 current size ones.

But does anyone honestly think being told how many biscuits or cake to eat is going to do any good whatsoever?
I dont...

Well, speaking as someone who can eat a pack of Tuc cheese-sandwich biscuits at a single sitting even after having had a gastric bypass, I am obviously way beyond helpful advice or government edicts.

As for Tunnocks caramel wafers or Mrs H's lemon-drizzle cake, she has to hide them from me.

Well it's good for taking your minds of the realities of life isn't it. Talk about biscuits and forget all the other b******* that's going on out there with the present bunch of pansies in charge. Hey ho - and Very Happy
