    Thats the problem, I always prefer to eat a McD meal then the school food which some times has been cooked first thing in the morning - i hate eating food which was cooked 4 hours ago. McD might be unhealthy but at least I feel like I have eaten something and cooked in the last 10 minutes.

    Exactly, their statement is such a cop out.

    In particular, the photographic images uploaded appear to only represent a fraction of the choices available to pupils, so a decision has been made by the council to stop photos being taken in the school canteen.
    Starting their own blog which shows these options which they claim are available would have been a much better move from a PR perspective.

    "The council’s focus is now on supporting the school in the education of young people in Argyll and Bute" ... what was it's focus on before? ... very poor choice of words.

    If the evidence presented caused staff to fear for their jobs surely it indicates that the situation is cause for concern and that the staff recognise that the situation is so bad that they should fear for their job. If, as the council maintain, the photos don't demonstrate the need for improvement then why are the staff worried. If the documented incidences of poor quality or unappealing food are accurate then they should be saying "thank you for bring this to our attention, we'll sort it out" not "you're causing our staff anxiety by highlighting their shortcoming which we don't recognise".

    Using "then" means you have 2 lunches.[/pedant]


    I do the same on the rare occasion I'm still about at lunchtime.

    I rather go and get fried chicken than faff about with school dinners...

    TBF some of the dinners don't look too bad, some look absolutely appalling and the portion size for an average price of £2... £2 in Scotland is a Sunday roast for all the family, or a sausage supper and a single fag.

    I personally blame Jamie Oliver. Ban all easy to cook foods and have untrained, close to retirement, minimum wage part timers trying to cook fancy food for hundreds of people using cheap ingredients... No wonder most of the kids in our school just get 2 cookies for their dinner. Yep, a diet of exclusively desert items is far healthier than chips, fish fingers, sausages, etc

This Article shall not prevent States from requiring the licensing of broadcasting, television or cinema enterprises."
    We have to remember that this right is not absolute and does not cover all situations. If it were, schools would be violating it every day. Children would be entitled to voice obscenities at staff all day long without being reprimanded. They would be allowed to take photos of teachers on their phones and share them around unrestricted. Technically they would also be allowed to do nothing but watch TV in school all day because we could not interfere with them "receiving information".

    I disagree with the council's decision, but trotting out the Human Rights Act like it overrides everything else is nonsense. I believe that legally they are within their rights to stop her using a camera. Ethically, it is very questionable indeed.

    BBC News - NeverSeconds blogger Martha Payne school dinner photo ban lifted
