The truth is if this misshapen stuff was sold at a significant reduction
cos it's worth shit right, people would buy it, but of course the
supermarkets want to keep prices inflated so it's never gonna happen.
Supermarkets will sell whatever they can make a good profit on. But
selling wonky veg will only detract from their sales of Grade A produce,
so they may not see it as particularly attractive. Moreover, it won't
save the planet. They won't sell any more veg overall; they'll just
perhaps buy less of the Grade A stuff.
So now you are excepting that we have a surfeit. I thought we were in
danger of starving.
For the time being we're OK, and I've never said otherwise. Either your
comprehension or your memory is at fault if you think I have. But there
will come a time when the population runs ahead of supply, and then
we're in big trouble. We can't expect food production to keep pace with
a population increasing by 40% every 50 years or so, as it is. It will
be 10 billion in 2050, up from about 7 billion today.
You can choose to believe otherwise if you like. But you'll be hiding
your head in the sand, unwilling to face reality.
The idea that the population in the UK can keep increasing is untenable.
Sooner or later we need to change. Not my problem. I'll be long dead.
You seem to only have one solution. I think the last thing we should be
doing is following your route. We probably will of course because our
politicians are gutless. Let's hope the future is populated by sensible
people who come to a suitable bloodless solution to the problem. I doubt
it though. Every numpty with a belief in deities will claim some shit
about God's will etc and the blood will flow or we might get lucky and
have a plague.

And if you think organic production is the way to go, when it requires
one extra field for every two we currently cultivate just to achieve the
same yields, you need to sit down very carefully with a map sometime and
tell us where they all are.
I doubt it. They're not huge consumers of fresh veg, wonky or not.
No, wonky veg is entirely a middle-class affectation based on the
assumption that it would all be thrown away or ploughed in if it weren't
eaten by them, and isn't that a catastrophe for the planet? Sad that it
isn't true, but you can't tell them that, they're oblivious.
I see you have given up on the feeding animals fantasy [wise choice] but
quelle surprise you've gone for the middle classes. Nice twist. Like it.
In fact in one fell swoop you took a swipe at the working class and
their bad diet and the middle class liberal twitterati save the planet
green lobby. You're gifted. Munch on a raw carrot. One of those watery
chem grown one's. You've earned it.
