@matthaig1 look at the levels of abuse politicians get, especially women. Look at anyone with a vague public profile and see the abuse.@matthaig1 i’ve had abuse for daring to talk about food on the radio while being fat and ugly. It’s social media. It’s the best and worst.@matthaig1 which you also said generated a mostly positive reaction, despite some complaints.@matthaig1 it was probably well meaning but very naive. Q and As on here invariably go wrong. Look at the political ones.@matthaig1 it’s not. It’s using social media the wrong way.What a fantastically written letter. Who will join him? http://t.co/fcceaa5GQ1

Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@PlanetVictoria you are so refined. All I want is tinto de verano . . .@clairestrickett @HadleyFreeman @timhayward and I have no eating issues from my Mother at all, so it wasn’t her.@HadleyFreeman @clairestrickett @timhayward my whole life i’ve had the idea that thin women are morally superior to me@HadleyFreeman @clairestrickett @timhayward “ I eat well, look at me, I am thin, I am morally superior.”@HadleyFreeman @clairestrickett @timhayward oh it’s completely about morality and a replacement for sex.@clairestrickett @timhayward even Blythman hasn’t taken the topic up and she is the obvious candidate.@clairestrickett @timhayward danger is male food writers might look misogynist, female ones jealous. It’s a hard one.One of the founding principles of the #AngryParty is telling anyone who enforces austerity to stick it up their arse. #SexySocialism
Retweeted by Rachel McCormack@HarryGiles Catalonia does it from a very different philosophical starting point and is more succesful.@HarryGiles it’s one of the problems with food education I think. Too much top down ‘do gooding’ doesn’t help change the culture.@HarryGiles it does in UK. It’s the Victorian paternalistic model. It’s not the same elsewhere.@tamdeanburn just been listening to you on McLevy xThe BBC is under threat because its success challenges market ideology | Polly Toynbee http://t.co/B3TOc3naaR
