Why is it that Labour parties seem to have dud ideas?

Labour is dead set useless, they focus on retard policies and treat voters like their policies.

In the UK it isn’t much different, hell, they even share policies with New Zealand Labour.

Ed Milliband is proving to be just a savvy with the voters as David Cunliffe.

Junk food adverts aimed at children face being banned before the watershed, under proposals announced by Labour today.

Shadow health secretary Andy Burnham said too many children were ‘exposed to adverts for foods high in fat, sugar and salt’ – particularly during popular Saturday night shows like the X Factor.

The proposal was contained in a raft of public health measures announced today aiming to tackle Britain’s obesity epidemic.

Yeah because the nanny state is always a vote winner.

Mr Burnham said Labour would impose ‘a time watershed for advertising of products high in sugar, fat and/or salt’ if measures cannot not be agreed with regulators to dramatically cut the number of junk food adverts aimed at children.

The Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt took to Twitter to condemn the proposals.

He said that “banning and legislation not always the answer” and that “backing families to make better choices brings lasting change”.

But Mr Burnham accused the Government of being ‘too close to powerful vested interests’ to stand up for children.

Sound familiar? …same attack line Andrew Little and the Greens are using against Katherine Rich.

Not once do they consider that parents should stand up for children, no, it must be the all knowing and controlling government.

He said Labour would impose maximum amounts of fat, sugar and salt contained in food aimed at children, such as crisps and cereals.

Mr Burnham revealed that a Labour government will put the ‘promotion of physical activity’ at the centre of health policy and will unveil a ‘national ambition’ to get people doing more exercise.

The manifesto will publish new recommended levels of physical activity, including a basic minimum that everyone who can should try to do, as well as a ‘recommended level that we should aspire to get at least 50 per cent of people achieving by 2025’.

There will also be ‘targeted action’ on high-strength, low-cost alcohol such as white cider – with minimum prices and a ban on larger bottles.

Same solutions as being proposed here…nanny state control freaks…voters just love this stuff, they will be flocking back to Labour any day soon.

And plain cigarette packaging will be introduced immediately to ‘halt the industry’s increasingly sophisticated methods of recruiting new, young smokers’.

Labour will have a goal that children born in 2015 will become the first ‘smoke-free generation’.

Another ill-conceived ban, with zero evidence to suggest it works and plenty of evidence from Australia that the opposite occurs.

Woseserism and nanny statism are vote catchers…for the party that doesn’t do this dumb stuff.

When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
