Ugly food

An amusing moment just now in the food poverty debate. Laura Sandys, the Tory MP for Thanet, gave a plug for her new “Ugly Food” campaign, which encourages the sale and consumption of wonky carrots, ugly spuds, deformed tomatoes. Its slogan, she declared, is “Tasty but Imperfect. Just Like You.”

In the Commons however, “you” always means whoever’s in the Speaker’s Chair. Dawn Primarolo gave Laura her best Mary Poppins “practically perfect in every way” look… Oops.

    She wasn’t offended by being called tasty?
