Scots eat as much fruit and vegetables as the English do: JRF Poverty Report Extract 5

Over a third (39%) of people in the richest fifth of the population eat the recommended amount, falling to only 15% of those in the poorest fifth. There are no significant differences between England, Wales, Scotland and NorthernIreland.’ (P79)

    Hi John – Noticed this snippet in the Record re. a Tory north brit accounting unit cooncillor on Aberdeenshire Cooncil. Couldn’t help but wonder whether he’s getting his 5 pieces of fruit a day? (see below):

    Castle-owning Tory buffoon who accused rivals of crying ‘crocodile tears’ over welfare cuts owes thousands in council tax

    Clan chief and councillor Sebastian Arbuthnot-Leslie owes more than £2500 to Aberdeenshire Council.
    An SNP source said: “Just yesterday, we had reports of Tory toff Seb Leslie downplaying the harm being done by welfare cuts from the UK Government.
    “Yet this castle-dwelling, out-of-touch hypocrite is failing to stump up his dues to fund those services, in a council he’s elected to serve.

    Same as it ever was.
