I don’t know whether you have noticed – but, in the middle of the political crisis in Britain about Brexit, the Daily Mail’s lead story was dedicated to the fact that Theresa May is championing reducing food waste and thought it was perfectly fine to scrape the mould off a jar of jam and eat what is underneath.

Admittedly, when questioned further, she admitted that it was most probably a case for the individual, but I don’t think I’d want her running my kitchen – let alone my country.

(The Daily Mail also noted that most jam sold in Britain originated in either France or Germany. So, after Brexit, jam should maybe play no role in her breakfast anyway?)

I also liked opposition leader, Jeremy Corbyn’s comments. As a lover of both making and consuming jam, he noted: “I never personally get around to scraping off mould, as my delicious efforts never last that long.”
