Here is a quite brilliant letter to the Telegraph today, on the subject (roughly) of dodgy food:
The meat scandal demonstrates that all supermarkets should be
nationalised. Only a National Food Service (NFS), can deliver the quality of food the
British people are entitled to expect.
Too much expensive food is eaten by a small part of the population while many
go without. This inequality needs to be a thing of the past, with regional Strategic Food
Authorities and local commissioning groups having total control over the supply
What food is needed, and how much, could be determined by a quango, the
National Institute for Food Excellence, Nife.
Costs could be saved by closing down surplus supermarkets and rationalising
delivery to them. For example, weekly bread deliveries would clearly save money.
In just a few years this food service would be the envy of the world.
