Old Holborn has closed his Blog Comments.

I can understand that he is being inundated with crank and nasty comments, But by closing comments altogether he will alienate those that have supported him in the past. If you remember the Nick Hogan affair,


then you'll realise that it was the support in the comments that galvanised most of us to donate to the fighting fund.

So Holbie, stand up to the crease and realise that you have to take the rough with the smooth.  I do respect that you feel that you've  been driven to this course of action. But I think that you are wrong to pull down the shutters on the world , in the hope that those nasty people will go away. There  lies defeatism. "They have won".

However it's your blog, and you can do what you please. but just have a rethink. Please


Comments are enabled. Well done OH for stepping up to the plate.



Haven't seen this on the London Underground yet.

Nanny still knows best



Another one of those "Fake Charities" sticking it's nose in again to try and justify it's existence before it's funding is cut off. (Hopefully).

Children using takeaway shops at the school gates could be consuming more fat and salt in one meal than an adult's maximum daily recommendation.

and who is it you ask? One of the old favourites.

The snapshot study, carried out by London environmental health food teams on behalf of Consensus Action on Salt and Health (Cash), will refuel fears over child obesity in London.

Of course the general public gives generously.

Its 2007/08 accounts show a total income of £213,347, of which:

  • Food Standards Agency: £23,500
  • ---
  • Total £23,500 (11% of all income)

There is no record of any voluntary donations from the public.

And we also have another Fake charity chipping (Pun with no salt) in.

The School Food Trust, established by the Department for Education, has consistently supported the use of stay-on-site policies at lunchtime, which are working well for many schools and have the backing of the majority of parents.

And we're all giving generously to this one aren't we?


Its 2008 accounts show a total income of £8,897,000.

  • Grant in Aid (Department for Children, Schools and Families): £1,215,000
  • Capital grant (Department for Children, Schools and Families): £6,436,000
  • Total £7,651,000 (86% of all income)

All the rest of its income (£1,246,000) came from the Big Lottery Fund.

I hope they are building a big enough bonfire. It's up to the parents to decide what's best for their children.

Too long?

Just how long  do you work for?


H/T to Old Holborn for this.
