Quelle Surprise!

The BBC reports that hospital food cooked with fresh local ingredients may save the NHS millions of pounds every year. Sourcing meat, vegetable and dairy from surrounding areas also means less air/road mileage, carbon emissions and a boost for local producers. It’s a “no-brainer”.

A call to Auntie!

Both Iain Dale and Sunder Katwala have called for the live TV debate on Thursday to be screened on a terrestrial channel such as the BBC, ITV or Channel 4. As it stands, the debate between Brown, Cameron and Clegg will only be shown on Sky News. That could mean as little as 1 million watch the debate compared to the peak of 11 million that watched last week.

The second live TV debate will be moderated by Adam Boulton  for Sky at 8:00pm on Thursday evening. The location is Bristol and the debate subjects include International relations, UK defence, Climate change and International Development. In the name of democracy, one of the big three terrestrial stations must reschedule!
