Of course polititians are entitled to their free (paid for by the people) lunches, but I’d also like them to be aware of their public image:
“Gordon Brown and his fellow world leaders have sparked outrage after it was disclosed they enjoyed a six-course lunch followed by an eight-course dinner at the G8 summit where the global food crisis tops the agenda.
[From G8 summit: Gordon Brown has eight-course dinner before food crisis talks – Telegraph]
I agree with Jeff here, I guess that’s what a lot of people might say:
“Iâ€™ll say it again: I will start acting like there is a crisis when people who are telling me there is a crisis start acting like there is a crisis.
How the fuck can you eat 18 dishes over 8 courses and 5 different wines just for dinnerâ€¦ after having finished a six course lunch?”
Anshu’s comment also deserves a mention – this is about money, not about food. I hate it when the real issues get garbled through the press. What we really need is a TV station that calls things what they really are, people are being dumbed down a lot nowadays.
