The Brits have gone completely bonkers!

Spurning leftovers may hurt climate. (ht: Tim Blair)

British Environment Minister Joan Ruddock has warned citizens that by not eating leftover food, they are effectively causing climate change.

Ruddock said that through food waste and excessive shopping, British citizens were paying a significant cost in both environmental and financial terms, The Independent reported Friday.

"At this rate we will not have a place to live which is habitable if we don't address climate change globally and the U.K. has to make its contribution," she said of such social problems.

To which I say...

"If you don't eat yer meat, you can't have any pudding. How can you
have any pudding if you don't eat yer meat?"

This is the ultimate dream of such religions—martyrdom through self-destruction.

And we think we have it bad, this level of boobery usually just comes out of the mouths of our celebrities.

For the life of me -- I don't understand why the English don't start tar and feathering their politicians.

Maybe it's crap like this that helps remind us of why we had a revolution to being with. The Boston Leftovers Party!
