    English-style diet 'could save 4,000' in rest of UK

    Why is it that the Scots, Welsh and Irish are such lard a r s e s ? I can't believe it is just because they are poor and ill educated?

    Any ideas why they choose to reject that more sophisticated look of the superior nation?

    To be sure , to be sure ......
     
  4. Die earlier due to poor diet.
    Poor diet due to poverty.
    Poverty due to poor education.
    So, either we blame the Celtic fringe teachers, or we assume that all Celts are a bit dim.

    cyolba, engendering enmity since 1873 :)

    Traditional foods may be the answer. Personal favourites from the unhelathier parts of the UK:
    Ireland - white pudding, soda bread (fresh with lots of butter)
    Scotland - haggis, pies
    Wales - rarebit, welsh cakes (high in fat I think you'll find).
    meanwhile in a lot of England, salad and sandwiches have taken over theoretically!

    Do the Scots still do that deep fried Mars Bar thing or was that just an urban myth?

    As always good succinct analysis cybola. At present I'm looking at both rather than either or.

    I've never eaten one, never been to a chippie that sold them, don't know anyone who has eaten one. I would love to know whether they are an urban myth or not, too.

    I've seen them for sale in Scottish chip shops. I've also seen someone order a pizza which was then battered and chucked in the deep fat frier.

  13. Do you think they're fired to remote Highland villages that don't have a chippy?

    To be honest sweetie I don't think it really matters what gender I am. Seren believes me to be a woman and has promised to let me know when she changes her mind. I am in fact a man. I am odd that is true. I am asexual and never had a relationship with another. I think if you could be bothered to do a search there is abundant information about me previously shared and discussed on these pages. I thank you for your interest in me and bid you farewell this evening as the somnambulance has just arrived x

    "Deep fried mars bars, chips and cheese,
    High rates of heart disease......"
    sung to the tune of Peer Gynt's Hall of the Mountain King (I think),
    from Scottish Opera for kids 2 years ago, in which Scots and French kids were extolling the virtues of their respective countries!
