Most hated vegies

200 calories of celery

Angus has listed Britain’s ten most hated vegies – no wonder the state of health of Brits is so poor:

1. Celery
2. Cabbage
3. Parsnip
4. Mushrooms
5. Cauliflower
6. Cucumber
7. Tomatoes
8. Onions
9. Peas
10. Carrots

Apart from tomatoes, I can’t say I like them particularly but they are immensely useful for the body.  One of Angus’ commenters asked that if they’re so hated, why aren’t they cheap on the shelves?  Good point – I suspect they don’t want us healthy but it’s probably just demand.

Stop reading the MSM

She lists many of the reasons:

Youth crime, teenage pregnancy or anti-social behaviour, community-spirit withered, family relationships fractured, sense of individual responsibility eroded, crime rising, welfare dependency, the proliferation of young unmarried mothers, the isolation of the elderly, “social recession”, a sense of moral decay linked periodically with the latest disturbing front-page crime breakdown of morality,  parents who let their children run wild, binge-drinking, problem estates, town centres that have become no-go areas, and the unease felt by the “decent, hard-working majority” who “feel the odds are stacked in favour of a minority who will talk about their rights but never accept their responsibilities” …

Whenever Norman Tebbitt writes, the comments section is swamped.  However, it is possible to gauge the mood and it’s summed up by one calling himself Brit Abroad:

DC simply doesn’t give me the feeling that he has the strength to do what is needed.  If he does, why doesn’t he step up and tell people what they want to hear?

Referendum on EU membership, tough times ahead while we fix the economy, tough stance on immorality within Westminster, dramatic reduction in number of civil servant jobs, actions to reduce or freeze immigration, financial policies that prevent best talents from leaving the UK, steps to return town and city centres to the civilised world, etc.  (I’d like to include something about abandoning carbon trading too, but he has already declined to stand up and be counted on this one).

I’m not holding my breath though.  If I had a vote, it would be going to the UKIP – plant the seeds for a positive change in 20 years or so… Depressing, huh?
