We have too much food! Something must be done!

THE FOOD FASCISTS are out again, stung into righteous finger-wagging by some report that says we’re wasting too much food.

It’s the usual clamour from the usual bunch of the Professionally Concerned. People are getting fat! Food is too cheap! Supermarkets are to blame – they give us too much choice! They advertise! Something must be done! Ban something! Tax the supermarkets more! Tax the food producers more! Put the price of food up! Starve us! Make us eat our leftovers!
