KNOW WHAT'S COMING NEXT-NEW YORK BANS SALT IN RESTAURANTS!
The nannying tendencies of New York's civic leaders have reached a new level with a proposal to fine restaurants that add salt to food.
Felix Ortiz has proposed a bill that would ban the use of salt in New York restaurants. Bill A10129 would fine restaurateurs $1000 (£600) each time they were caught adding salt to food. The New York assemblyman said it would allow diners to choose whether to do it themselves. The administration of Michael Bloomberg, New York City's mayor, has already outlawed smoking from many public areas, banned unhealthy trans fats from prepared food and ordered many restaurants to list the calories in each item on the menu. He also favours a new tax on sweet fizzy drinks to help cut obesity.
And we're still arguing over the smoking ban! Believe me down the line this law is coming to the UK. I don't want to add my own salt. I want the BASTARD who is cooking it and whom I am paying to 'CREATE' a dish for my pallet. I hope they never get round to banning FARTING IN LIFTS, that's a particular favourite of mine!
