Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

  2. I dont eat cereals, to much salt
  3. Frankly I find this even more disturbing. Tequila Threat

    I might even write to my MP.
  4. Ah ethanol. Wasn't it scientifically proven that the corn variety costs more energy to produce than it puts out? Mad world.
  5. The only thing ethanol provides is votes for US politicians. There's an episode of the West Wing (Series 7, can't remember which) where the arguments are quite clearly made, in a far better manner than I could make them.

    Indeed so. But the Left believes in it, so starving people and burning even more fossil fuel to produce ethanol is what has to happen. So also other nonsenses, like wind farms, and South Korea sending 30,000 tons of grain to feed the N Korean army.
  7. What does it matter to the left, if the poor people of the world starve? They are supposedly on the climate change moral highground and MUST be obeyed.

    Lunacy, sheer lunacy.
