Lunch lady slammed for food that is 'too good'

A talented head cook at a school in central Sweden has been told to stop baking fresh bread and to cut back on her wide-ranging veggie buffets because it was unfair that students at other schools didn't have access to the unusually tasty offerings.

The municipality has ordered Eriksson to bring it down a notch since other schools do not receive the same calibre of food - and that is "unfair".

This progressive desire to reduce everyone to the lowest common denominator is why we won't be able to get health care that the bureaucratic rationing board denies us even if we want to pay for it ourselves. And why medical tourism will become a bigger industry.
