Britain urging return to wartime food frugality


www.examiner.com

ONDON (Map, News) - Waste not, want not.

Evoking an era of World War II austerity, British families are being urged to cut food waste and use leftovers in a nationwide effort to fight sharply rising global food prices.

It's not back to ration books, "victory gardens" or squirrel-tail soup yet, but warning bells are being rung by experts at all levels of Britain's government as well as from the World Food Program.

With food and energy prices soaring around the world, a constant supply of high-quality, affordable food is no longer guaranteed, the officials are warning Britons. That could mean an era of scarcity like Britain's 1940-54 food rationing, during the war and its aftermath.

Here in the U.S. we have long enjoyed a plentiful supply of food at prices lower, comparatively, than much of the rest of the world. It looks like Britain is ahead of us in preparing for a possible future scarcity. Should we do likewise?

Cut the tax on fuel then food prices would be ok, just another greedy power hungry government shafting the general public.

They probably decided we waste too much food while they was enjoying a 8 course meal. The governments promoted Bio fuels which is the main reason for the food crisis. It wasn't the average joe pushing for Bio fuel.

They create a problem then blame the public for it!
