MORE ABOUT THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT’S PROPOSAL TO REGULATE WHERE JUNK FOOD CAN BE SOLD AND WHEN IT CAN BE ADVERTISED
On the subject of my recent post about the British government’s proposal to control product placement in the supermarket, we learn from a Business Insider article that the proposal goes even further:
“It wants sweets removed not only from checkout areas at supermarkets but also from sale in clothing shops and other non-food outlets. It calls for a ban on TV ads for any high fat, salt or sugary food, which would include products such as pizza and crisps, not just during children’s broadcasting but during any programme before 9pm.”
Ironically, the day that this news appeared, November 30, was the birthday of Winston Churchill. Does the phrase “turning over in his grave” mean anything to you?
