Dr Alf has some good suggestions for this growing problem which lies behind both our productivity crisis and the crisis with Adult Social Care and the NHS.

What should happen as well is :

6) Variable taxes on food

7) More park and ride facilities for cities, as per Salzburg in Austria and City Centers left for pedestrians

8) Salt, sugar and e-number content reduced in all foods

9) Education on nutrition, vitamin supplementation and cookery

10) Zoning laws applied to reduce the number of fast food outlets and increase the number of healthy food outlets

11) Opt out of Alimentarius Commission directives on food and seeds and set food policy ourselves

12) Give employers tax breaks for creating workplace gyms subject to their employees losing weight and getting fitter

13) Ban cigarette smoking in all places except for a person’s home

14) Encourage the brewers to close down more pubs and create more gyms and hotels

15) Refuse surgery to obese patients and smokers until they have lost weight and stopped smoking as happens already in the North and East Herts NHS Trust in my area.

16) Remove harmful chemicals some of which cause obesity and cancer and dementia from packaging, plastic bottles, fertilizers, plastic  products, tins, tinfoil and cooking utensils

17) Ban fluoride from toothpaste, water and foodstuffs

18) Ban Aspartame

19) Eliminate aluminium saucepans and ban the use of aluminium in deodorants go for Pit Rock instead

20) Eliminate eostrogens from fertilizer and water

21) Promote exercise in counrty parks and Tai Chi in village halls

22)Promote the growing of vegetables and gardening in general

23) Reintroduce 2 years of National Service for all youngsters and Civilian Conservation for the long term unemployed

24) Reinstate school playing fields and domestic science

Opinion – Some thoughts on the UK Military Deterrent: six thirty year old planes deployed – John Gelmini

Dr Alf says he is angry but what has happened is part of a strategy devised a long time ago, which is and was, to reduce the Tri-Forces to 100,000 people, merge the RAF into the Army Air Corps and bring back the troops from BAOR in Germany.
Then, the plan calls for all forces housing stock to be sold off, the sacking of more regular Army troops and their replacement by the Territorial Army, which represents the newly re-badged “Reserve”.

The UK has some Trident submarines and they represent a deterrent to small countries with no nuclear weapons but beyond that the UK has no deterrent worthy of the name.

We have just 17 escort vessels for our shipping, a figure which Lord West, a former Admiral and First Sea Lord, says is a dangerous disgrace.

We have no control over our own borders and permit traitors and seditionists to campaign for a Caliphate, commit atrocities in other countries and return to this country. So far, 250 have returned whereas anyone with an iota of common-sense would have had them eliminated with “extreme prejudice” before they got here.

The plan to recruit reservists to replace sacked soldiers is failing, which means that we should be looking at National Service once more.

Dr Alf rails against 36 year old planes, I worry about our lack of a single coastal protection vessel and the fact that we are little more than a “plug and play ” component in America’s global military. It means that we are totally reliant on them for defense and are incapable of projecting power in pursuit of our own interests. Relying on others in this way is dangerous. We should stop pretending that we are a great power and re-equip our forces properly, re-introduce National Service and modernise the forces we have with Stealth ships, Stealth aircraft, invisibility suits for our troops and thermobaric weapons, capable of producing the explosive power of a Hiroshima style nuclear bomb but without the harmful radioactive fallout.

ISIL/ISIS cannot be destroyed by air power alone. It requires action against the countries which fund it by removing and replacing their regimes. It requires the application of the Treason Act 1318 against them and their sympathisers here in the UK, the deportation of imans not from here who preach sedition or treason. Mosques where this dangerous nonsense is propounded need to be closed and the sites cleared for building essential worker housing.

In the end, we are probably going to have to reintroduce conscription, raise an army of millions and go after ISIS militants wherever they are. This is because we have left it too late to remove them whilst Western leaders procrastinated, especially President Obama.
