  1. #1 Brits Crack Down On Racist Babies. 
    Toddlers who dislike spicy food 'racist'

    Toddlers who turn their noses up at spicy food from overseas could be branded racists by a Government-sponsored agency.

    The National Children's Bureau, which receives £12 million a year, mainly from Government funded organisations, has issued guidance to play leaders and nursery teachers advising them to be alert for racist incidents among youngsters in their care.

    This could include a child of as young as three who says "yuk" in response to being served unfamiliar foreign food.

    The guidance by the NCB is designed to draw attention to potentially-racist attitudes in youngsters from a young age.

    It alerts playgroup leaders that even babies can not be ignored in the drive to root out prejudice as they can "recognise different people in their lives".
    These are the End Days.

    That would be approximately one out of every one toddler, right?

    Honestly, what happened to England? Why are they constantly doing these outrageously stupid things?

    It can't be all of England that is doing this kind of thing.

    I love spicy food as an adult, but it took a few decades of smoking to numb my taste buds to the point where I can eat Thai or Indian food.

    There is just so much wrong this. All children go through picky phases or phases of eating just a few familiar foods. Will they rehab the Asian kid who turns up his nose at common British dishes? Food is a personal issue. Disliking spicy foods or unfamiliar foods isn't some kind of moral failing, it's a preference. I could go the rest of my life without curry and still have a high quality existence. The same is true of any food or any preparation method.

    The idea of Food Police is appalling.

    I'd say this has to be a joke but its already here in the States. You can't say super-size at mickey D's no more trans-fats. It's beginning to remind me of Escape from L.A. no smoking, no drinking no sex before marriage. Can't wait til I get thrown in jail for farting in public. Emitting green house gases without a carbon offset.

    Steak and kidney pie is just such an appetizing concept-I think plenty of kids would be sickened by the idea. Or pickled eels, or whatever other traditional "british" foods one can name, with a few exceptions like scones, cheesecake, and fish and chips.

    I can't believe this is in the Telegraph. (It sounds like an Onion piece). This is even more frightening:

    Nurseries are encouraged to report as many incidents as possible to their local council. The guide added: "Some people think that if a large number of racist incidents are reported, this will reflect badly on the institution. In fact, the opposite is the case."
    Does this not sound like George Orwell? The guy was in government and seems to have been privy to actual future planning.
