“We need to protect our children from the advertising of food products which are high in sugar, fats or salts. This will help parents in their task of raising our children well.?

So said Eamon Ryan in his speech to the Green Party Conference today.

Our hostess Liz when reading this out to me said ‘Great – keep them healthy but don’t let them have rights under flakey civil partnership laws (hard to believe that Green Party goings on get followed so closely over in London they’ll be thinking they’ve really made it!!)

I’ll say it now before the Green’s bombard the comments – The Heads of the Civil Partnership/Cohabitant Rights Bill if not the 200 pages themselves are due soon and the Green Party say that the rights of children already being parented are going to be included.

Interesting to note that there was a workshop on Blogging and New Media today at the conference. I expect loads of comments and new blogs from party members spinning their part in government shortly!  Mick what did you teach them??
