Well, well, well. According to WRAP, the thoroughly risible quango formed by our piss-fuck-awful government to advise on packaging (packaging, PACKAGING, sweet Jesus, is there nothing better to spend our taxes on?), we regularly grow whole fruit crops in our window boxes before deliberately burning them, and often rustle livestock off local farms and drive them directly into landfills.
OK, I'm exaggerating, but the original bleating by this pack of shit-a-beds isn't any more readily digestible. I forget the exact amount, but I think they claim that we throw away 1.4 million pots of yoghurt unopened, whole chickens and even 400,000 odd ready meals daily. So what did they do? Go out and count them personally?
I saw this story covered on C4 news, C5 news, Working Lunch and Al Beeb One O'Clock. Is it just me, or is anyone else getting royally fucked off with the way in which these numbers are simply reeled off without question as if they were some sort of divine revelation. This is a trend which is enabling those interfering shits of which I spoke last Thursday. It started with willfully mendacious shite factories like ASH and runs like this:
1: Pull a number out of arse,
2: Double it,
3: Bang it out under the guise of 'research' or 'studies',
4: Repeat until the MSM take up the chorus,
Return to step 1 and repeat as long as the funding holds up.
Apart from the piss-poor showing by our commentariat in allowing this practice to flourish, I really am sick of these bastard parasites being paid from my taxes to nag the living shit out of me. In the final analysis I bought the stuff, it therefore, is mine. Got that? Mine. If I want to dump 'Taste the difference' Chicken Nibletz into my garden pond, or nail gammon steaks to the shed that's my affair. When will you people shut the fuck up and bugger off?
