G8 summit: Gordon Brown has eight-course dinner before food crisis talks


www.tel egraph.co.uk

The Prime Minister was served 24 different dishes during his first day at the summit – just hours after urging the world to reduce the "unnecessary demand" for food and calling on British families to cut back on their wasteful use of food.

Mr Brown and his wife Sarah were among 15 guests at the "blessings of the earth and the sea social dinner".

The dinner consisted of 18 dishes in eight courses including caviar, smoked salmon, Kyoto beef and a "G8 fantasy dessert".

It's too bad the talks were not about the world disease crisis. Perhaps he would have had a nice bowl of malaria instead...

Actually, I do not even know what to say to this. There are not words to convey how angry this makes me feel. it's one of those things you have to try to laugh about lest you go mad.

Gordon Brown gives me the creeps. This is a typical leader that feels he is above the "Average Joe" and the rules don't apply to him.

I would crawl under the table in shame if I was Gordon Brown. Same with Al Gore and his lobby for climate control. Everybody must stop using excessive amounts of electricity and water, except of course for Al Gore himself. This great nobel prize winner uses 20 times more electricity and water then the average American.


These kind of people represent hypocrisy in it's purest form.

Typical ain't it?.
Greedy politicians have an 18 (EIGHTEEN ) Course meal, and I had to make do with 2 burgers from maccyD's... Some of the world have even less than I had today.
It's just so hypocritical of all MP's . They grab what they can (of soup) and step on the (rib) backs of others to get it.
I bet none of them thought " hang on a second (course) , this isn't right"...
NO I bet they went hammer and tongs at the trough inspite of what talks they knew they were going to have.
It's about time we got rid of ALL mp's and politicians and voted for what we wanted by majority rules. I bet the world would be a better plaice with them greedy fat(tening) second (course - make that a third course) human beings

It's not so much arrogance but the fact that they KNOW the stuff they spew and expect us all to obey is nothing but lies. If saintly Al Gore believed all the stuff he spews then he'd do something about his own carbon footprint and energy usage. The fact that he doesn't shows he doesn't believe it himself. That in turn should indicate to people that it's all a scam and the food / fuel situation is all a manufactured event for the consumption (and taxation) of the masses.

This remind me of the end of George Orwell's Animal Farm, where the greedy NWO pigs are stuffing themselves and saluting their fascist regime.

How the hell does anyone even eat 18 courses????

Well my goodness, can't have food crisis talks on an empty stomach.



Seriously though, that makes me angry. The elite seem to love saying "do as I say and not as I do."

They don't care about us anyway.

To be fair - 18 "courses" doesn't make a lot of sense when applied to a Japanese meal, where a single bowl of rice counts as a "course".

"A large meal consisting of 18 small dishes" would be more appropriate - but it doesn't have quite the same ring to it, does it?

Pains me to say it, but I've got to be honest: Seems to me like the media is making a bit too much of this, giving the impression that this crew is tucking in to an 18 course western-style meal. (I had a 6 course meal at lunch, by their standards: rice, miso soup, pickles, tempura, and cold soba - which is really nothing special)

Makes a nice smokescreen, though - get to talk about the waste of taxpayer's money instead of their complete and utter incompetence in dealing with the things they're supposed to be dealing with.

I agree, a 8 course dinner probably consisted of:

1: salad
2: meat
3: potatoes
4: rice
5: green beans
6: a piece of bread
7: a piece of Apple Pie
8: and an after dinner mint

The media makes it sound like they stuffed themselves, purged and stuffed themselves again. Deceptive Bastards!

This was just a simple meal...

Did I mention my favorite song is "Get Over It" by the Eagles
