Why is this bollocks? Well, for a start I went to state schools from 1979 to 1992 and I had more than two hours a week of sport. This was during the time that, according to Brown, bugger all money was spent in schools on sport. And yet, during that time there were not hundreds of oompa loompas rolling around the schools. His argument is, frankly, complete crap.
Oh yes, and he also said in Parliament that he's going to ban the advertising of "unacceptable foods". How long before he bans "unacceptable foods" altogether and we only eat a Government approved diet? Clause IV may not be around to allow for the nationalisation of production anymore, but it sounds like Brown wants to go for the nationalisation of consumption instead.
