McDonald's wants to open one of its drive-through restaurants for 20 hours each day.
Have your say
I live very close to the mcdonalds outlet in question and i have to say i am not disturbed by any excess noise from the outlet nor do i suffer ltter blowing into my garden. I think some people need a hobbie or a partner !!
D. Kebab: Good post and I agree with your sentiments. I too wish there were more simple freh food vendors (Singapore has a great system of hawker food courts, mostly outdoors in 30+ degrees) selling freshly cooked food at cheap prices. The problem is that there is so much regulation of food nowadays under the guise of protecting public health; one dicky tummy and there is a national panic. But our diet and processing food out of fear or to package has resulted in our immune systems becoming so weakened we have to regulate food preparation to such an extent that anything remotely foreign must be exterminated even though many bacteria could help our immune systems and improve our overall well-being. We are becoming like America where all the goodness and natural elements are processed out in order just to be artificially replaced later with pills which in turn supports a multi-billion pound pharmaceutical dietary supplement business which is a huge con. Over-caution with food is making us, as a society, weaker and more prone to illness. Much like you, I have eaten from street vendors all over the world and in some of the least sanitary countries and rarely encountered any nasty side-effects. I believe that this exposure has led me to be reasonably healthy and I haven't had a food-related problem in a couple of decades. Our bodies are much more resilient than we or the regulators seem to think they are.
Cheer up you bunch of OAPs. Just because there's a bunch of people who gorge on take out food (AND FOOD FROM ASDA) to the point where they are 10 stone overweight, why should that stop me having a McDonalds at 3am should I wish to?I suppose next you'll want anybody driving past your house to be arrested because it's past your bedtime? Get a grip.It's not McDonalds fault people are obese, it's peoples fault. What a ridiculous accusation. Fat people are gonna be fat anyway, whether they have to go to a salad bar or Maccy Ds. That should be no reason for rejecting their application!!!PS I want comments on the News and Star banned, beacuse it just makes people grumpy, thereby increasing stress, thereby increasing the amount of heart attacks, thereby overfilling our hospitals, killing our local population, and wasting MY tax paying money on extra NHS budgets.... right?
