Food manifesto

Freegan diets are thus made possible by the range of practices that produce commercial food waste that is nonetheless still edible, such as conservative sell-by datesthe deliberate overstocking of certain perishable products liked baked goodsor aesthetic criteria for fruits and vegetables.

Foreword Here you can read Labour's plan to do the things crying out to be done in our country today. To get Britain back to work. To rebuild our shattered industries. To get rid of the ever-growing dole queues. To protect and enlarge our National Health Service and our other great social services.

To help stop the nuclear arms race. Here you can see what Labour is determined to do, and how we shall set about it. But at once the objection is raised: Can we afford it? Where will the money come from? Are we not just making promises which cannot be fulfilled? You will find the detailed answers here.

But let us emphasise a few of them at once. The first short, sharp answer is that what Britain cannot afford is the present policy of accepting mass unemployment. Mass unemployment on the scale Mrs. Thatcher and her government have been prepared to tolerate - worse than we have ever known before and worse than any other industrial country has experienced - imposes a crushing burden on the whole community.

Of course it hits hardest the young denied work altogether, and their mothers and fathers thrown out of their jobs with little chance of getting another. But it also hits the whole country. Mass unemployment is the main reason why most families in Britain, all but the very rich, are paying more in taxes today than they did four years ago when the Conservatives promised to cut them for everybody.

Mass unemployment is the main reason why we are wasting our precious North Sea oil riches. It has all been swallowed by the huge, mounting cost of mass unemployment.

And the oil won't last for ever, although, according to Mrs. Thatcher's economics, the unemployment will.

Our country, no civilised country, can afford the human waste, the industrial and economic waste, involved in these policies. We in the Labour Party reject them absolutely, and we describe in this Manifesto the real constructive alternative, and how we shall pay for it.

See, first, our Emergency Programme of Action to be started immediately we are given the power. Most of these measures are designed to start the drive for expansion, and the cost of them has been added up. How fast can the country escape for the present stagnant rut? That is the real question.

So little is it true that Labour has not counted the cost. No party in opposition has ever stated its intentions so clearly and comprehensively.

What happens after the first expansion is launched?

Here in these pages we describe the conditions for success, the pace we can move forward, how that will depend on the response we can secure from all sections of the community, on the partnership we have established with the trade unions.

Without that continuing partnership to rebuild our country, all else will fail. True enough; but Labour is the only party which has worked for this partnership and pledges it for the future. And where will the money come from? Some of it will come from those oil revenues now pouring down the drain.

Some of it will come from the billions we waste on the dole queues. Some of it will come from the billions now being allowed to be exported in investment abroad.Award-winning news and culture, features breaking news, in-depth reporting and criticism on politics, business, entertainment and technology.

The years of Tory failure When the Tories took office in May , unemployment was falling and the economy growing.

Living standards had gone up by a sixth in two years, and North Sea oil held out the prospect of economic growth, high levels of employment and better social services. Freeganism is a practice and ideology participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources, particularly through recovering wasted goods like food.

The word "freegan" is a portmanteau of "free" and "vegan". While vegans might avoid buying animal products as an act of protest against animal exploitation, freegans—at least in theory—avoid buying anything as an act.
