According to the Daily Telegraph families will throw away almost £60 million of food this Christmas after buying too much. A spokesman from the government quango Waste & Resources Action Programme (WRAP) pleads with people to freeze what they can and thus save unecessary landfill.
Listen spokesman - you need to remember a few simple principles here:
1. Anything disposed of in the rubbish was bought with someone else's money - not yours.
2. Once purchased it becomes their property - not yours.
3. As their property, it is their decision what they do with it - not yours.
Oh, and 4. Go 'wrap' your presents, make a New Year Resolution not to assault our hearing with stupid pronouncements and leave the rest of us alone!
On the assumption you understand basic Anglo-Saxon English - F'Off!
