Such legislation is only effective if it applies not just to the producer of a product but also to any subsequent wholesaler or retailer in the chain.

Ted, you are right. We do not educate our children adequately in the field of nutrition. It always amazes me that there is no central body overseeing nutrition and so much of what is advised is way behind the latest research.

Could just truncate that sentence to: "We do not educate our children adequately"? I still commend John Smith's exhortation that we should aim to make our children the best educated in Europe(although I would say in the world).

Catty, if you are forgetting your German you can resort to Bablefish:

It's not always accurate but gets close.

Stanley, it's not so much being way behind the research but the advisers seem to take their lead from the news media rather than from scientists. Science progresses by experimentation - a scientist publishes some results claiming to show the moon is blue cheese, then other scientists will develop a better testing method and after perhaps a year show that's wrong, it's made of rock. But the media will have widely distributed and promoted the blue cheese theory and the public will say "These scientists are no good, they are always changing their minds". The way the news media handles science can be illustrated by an anology. Imagine a football match where United score a goal after 10 minutes - if handled like they do science, the media would report that "United have won". Then when City scored it would be a draw. When City scored a second goal it would be "City have won", and so on. In fact it's even worse with science because nobody blows a final whistle and the game is still being played!

2012 seems to be the time to enjoy all these discussions about new elected positions

the Lords
the Police

I'm just wondering why, when anyone who watches live TV has to buy a TV licence, no one has yet mentioned to the tax payers whether or not the people should actually be able to elect the people who serve on the Board of the BBC rather than being appointees? In much the same way that card carrying Union memebers can elect their officials.

Why should "we" take responsibility for "their" children. If "we" looked after "our own" children properly there would be no problem. However "they" realise that with our "interfering" society they (and their children) can just sit on their arses "and feed upon strawberries, sugar and cream"...provided by "us".

That's like me. Although I would replace "not always" by "never" in my case.

On several occasions when I have been over there I have been mistaken for a native of Holland. Not sure if it's the clogs or the Double dutch.

babelfish is hardly ever accurate, and if you know little about the language you might not notice the errors that it introduces.

I find the google translate much better, as generally the syntax and meaning is retained.

Catty, I had the same experience. You must have learned Platt Deutch which is used widely near the border. I picked mine up in Berlin and they tell me it stands out a mile. Most Hollanders don't like being addressed in High German but have no problems with platt Deutch.

I've locked this topic down, getting too big and might be slowing some people down. I'll put a link in the new one for this topic.
