Can People Not Do What They Like With What They Have Bought?

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!

Agreed. £60 million is £1 per person, FFS.
