    I've had a brilliant idea :))
    Just like during the war every one should get a ration card
    With how many calories they're allowed each week, as you
    Buy food and drink, they'd be marked off your card. Leading
    To a happier healthier Britain ! :))

    Not a bad idea but no doubt against human rights law (hopefully soon to be abolished). My late father said that the people of the UK were never as healthy as when rationing was going on. In fact, rationing did not fully end in the UK until 1954! :) -{

    add to that another Ration Book proving that you've been to the gym at least three times a week ! ;)
    ( I really should get into Politics ) :))

    Yes many Doctors even say the British diet during the rationing years was really healthy
    as there was no Junk food or excess of it. I used to make ( as my Dad did ) Bully Beef stew . :x
    A Stew made with Corned beef, as there wasn't much meat about during the war, but my Kids
    hated it, so I haven't had it in years but I thought it was really nice. :D

    I still have some of the old Ration Books in the house. Perhaps we can revive it 60 years later! :)) -{

    I wonder what Whiskey would complement, a fine Corned Beef stew ? ;)

    "Oooh, thought the wizened alcoholic looking at his 15th double vodka, that's another 300 hundred calories there.

    He looked down at his spare frame. Not an ounce of fat. No like those fat fuckers who lived on cream cakes, he thought.

    Still, it was awful nice to finally know how many joules of energy one got from every shot of booze"

    Wot next? ABV% on sherry trifles? ;)

    :)) Yes, I can see the local Winos debating the merits of which Strong Cider is less fattening. :D

    I can actually see some people choosing their drinks based on calories. I could easily imagine someone saying "I'll have the tutti-frutti vodka whipple instead of the caramal berry berry bourbon because it's got 50 less calories per tablespoon."

    or, " No Ice please ! I'm cutting down " :))

    Q. How does one get staggering-about pissed off your face without putting on weight?

    A. Throw your guts up outside in the street.

    No reason to worry about the calorific impact of booze at all.

    I suspect that this Westminster bullshit was thought up by the kind of person who thinks that the idea of Ed Milliband being the first in the bar ordering his glass of wine is the typical behaviour of your regular Brit pub-goer.

    I'm sure our Fantastically "in touch with the ordinary people" Politicians only
    have our Best interests at heart. :))

    But no less expensive:
