No, no, it’s not wet, it’s, it’s restin’

It emerged today that the EU’s Milk Programme promotes the health benefits of drinking water. Literature for the scheme states: “You may not have known, but a large part of milk is actually water. So, if you regularly drink milk, you can stay hydrated at the same time. When people do not get enough water [they may suffer from] a condition called ‘dehydration’.

Which is strange because just a couple of weeks ago, following three years of deliberation, the EU bizarrely ruled that drinks companies may no longer claim their bottled water products could help avoid dehydration. Manufacturers face two years in jail for breaching the edict.

It’s worthy of Monty Python at its best. Nobody expects the Belgian Inquisition. No, no, it’s not wet, it’s, it’s restin’.

About thespeedofdark

My name is David Winship. I’m a wild nomad from Reading in England. I was born, raised and educated there. I’ve never lived anywhere else and I still live there today. My ambition is to discover the world outside Reading and I plan to visit exotic destinations like Bracknell and Basingstoke.

Most writers are descended from a long line of adjectives, but I’m not. I don’t know how to describe myself. I was well educated but didn’t let it go to my head. You can tell that from my writing. My scribblings are the product of two million years of evolution, but, just like everybody else, I like to think I’m unique. My blog is part of my crusade for truth and justice and universal entitlement to free real ale.

It may well be that my whole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others.

Not many people find their way to this website. I don’t publicise it. Anyway, I’m glad you made it here. I’m truly humbled that you’ve taken the time to read my stuff. You may have landed on something that appears to be trite or even idiotic, but, taken as a whole, there’s a body of work here that I’m really proud of. I’m inclined to downplay its importance in my life, but I consider my writing as my soul, my legacy and my truth.
