No Ronald McDonald for Brits
Big government is one thing, but HUGE government is another. The Labour government in the UK is attempting to build support for a law banning advertising on television of junk food before 9PM. Their definition of 'junk food'?:
"Food and drink with high fat, salt or sugar content. This would affect more than the usual suspects of burgers, confectionery, crisps and fizzy drinks. It might also include some soups, breakfast cereals and convenience foods popular with children, such as fish fingers."

Rice cakes all round then?
