MP Tessa Munt wins our numbskull of the week award !

Never a day goes by when we are not having the epidemics of obesity and often linked type two diabetes rammed down our throats by the media. Only those recently arrived from another planet or released from a long stretch of solitary confinement, have not heard the news. and that news is reduce sugar if you value your health. My first thought after reading about MP Tessa Munt's ludicrous ranting, was who's payroll is she on. Checks of MP's declared interests comes up with zilch. This leads me to believe the woman must be unhinged !

"Tessa Munt, an aide to Vince Cable, the Business Secretary, warned that jam could be turned into “coloured mud” if plans go ahead to relax the regulations governing the minimum level of sugar which a product calling itself jam or marmalade can contain.
Ministers are planning to reduce the minimum sugar content in jam from 60 per cent to 50 per cent.
Ms Munt, the Liberal Democrat MP for Wells, warned that the new rules could result in runny spreads which quickly go out-of-date.
She said new regulations from Brussels will mean manufacturers will be able to call their fruit spreads jam even if they are only 50 per cent sugar.
Ms Munt warned that it will mean that producers will be able to sell a "gloopy sludge" that resembles nothing like the traditional British staple."

Now I will be the first to admit there are more than a few who regard me as one wave short of a shipwreck, but fighting to keep “a traditional British staple” with 60 per cent sugar content is utter madness.
