Three men are to be charged with taking £33 worth of food from a skip, a SKIP.
They didn't walk in and take it off the shelves, they took it from a skip.
To me, what should be in the public interest is finding out WHY people in this country have to take food from a skip in the first place.
(I know that for some, this is a lifestyle choice, but for most, it is a necessity)
What is also of public interest is WHY supermarkets are throwing away food?
If on the day it goes out of date, why can they not donate it to a local shelter? WHY would they rather throw food away than see it put to use?
So I am sorry CPS but I think your logic SUCKS.
I personally do NOT think it is in the public interest to prosecute people for taking food from a skip, and someone should be ashamed of themselves for letting it get this far.
What do you think?
Do you think people should be prosecuted for taking food from skips behind supermarkets?
Could supermarkets do more with the food instead of throwing it out?
Anyone else going to be worried when their mum says they are going to Iceland?
Let me know.
