Why stop at obesity?

Should parents receive a letter from their child's school to warn if the school is not providing a satisfactory education!?!

I guess you are a fellow 'Neil Harding-baiter', top stuff, I shall add you to my list of 'Blogs I also visit'

Mark Wadsworth said...

In fact, fuck it, I have put you in my Top Twelve Blogs. Don't let me down!

Snafu said...

Mark, I can't resist the baiting. However, I do feel as though it's like shooting fish in a barrel!

I do welcome the opportunity to debate though and Neil always comes back for more without any personal insults and debates on the issue at hand - a refreshing change!

PS More than happy to add you to my blogroll:)

Ta for link. No doubt we will join forces on Neil again sometime. A two pronged attack is more fun.

He never responded to my "why is free trade bad for democratic countries (which it isn't anyway), but at the same time embargoes etc. are unfair on dictatorships, oops, socialist paradises" question.

Neil Harding said...

Free trade is not bad, but unfair trade is. Tax free havens and hot money zipping in and out of countries at a rich man's whim is not good for anyone but them. Am getting round to giving a fuller answer on my blog soon - but been busy lately.

Mark Wadsworth said...

Woah, free trade means free trade!

Fair trade means that well meaning busybodies come along making up all sorts of rules and lining their own pockets.

I am not talking about 'hot money', I am talking about, if somebody in third world can earn twice as much in a sweat shop than they could slaving in the fields, then why shouldn't they? Just like people in England moved from the countryside to the cities a century or two ago?
