Re: We are buying too much food
It's fair enough I suppose, raising awareness of the amount of food wasted each year.
However, in the same way as picking on the motorist and blaming us for the ice caps melting (and taxing us to death because of it) is not really addressing the real problem, he seems to be ignoring the larger causes of waste food produce. Taking the easy way out, as usual.
I'm not aware of him taking the all-powerful supermarkets to task, for example, regarding their mindless rejection of hundreds of tonnes of fresh farm produce just because a few apples don't look quite 'appley' enough or some cucumbers are too bendy or some other such nonsense. He's afraid of telling the supermarkets what to do, but it seems he's not afraid to lecture Joe Public, the condescending t**t.
