He has so far won the support of fellow Tories Mike Penning and Bob Spink for his motion which states: “This House notes that Cadbury’s are trialling French sugar in their products; is disappointed with the company’s failure to use solely English sugar and support English sugar producers; and urges hon. Members to boycott Cadbury’s products until the company stops importing French sugar”.
Seriously, English (note, not even UK) companies should only use English raw materials? It isn’t even as if we’re talking a significant increase in food miles here (which isn’t Lankygitz’s complaint).
Lankygitz has until now been presented as the very model of a modern Tory backbencher – aside from being extremely tall of course. One wonders what a rightwinger would sound like.
