    As someone pointed out in the comments section on the BBC the human rights act allows freedom of speech without interferance from public bodies.

    "Everyone has the right to freedom of expression. This right shall include freedom to hold opinions and to receive and impart information and ideas without inference by public authority and regardless of frontiers. This Article shall not prevent States from requiring the licensing of broadcasting, television or cinema enterprises."

    I got sent it on MSN last night and saw it also linked on twitter, I read through the website, its a bit sad that they pulled the plug on a schoolgirl, but you can see why they have done it, looking at the lunches, some of them were not exactly good looking meals on the plate, trouble is though, by taking any action other than improving the meals, they are only going to create a worse situation for themselves I felt reading through it all.

    easier for a school/LA to roadblock a student than it is to sort out the catering. Well done to the student for having a go and for raising money for charity at the same time.

    She shouldn't have been taken out of class to be told this.

    True, but they do have the right to stop cameras being used during school...

    I heard her father being interviewed on Radio 4 this morning and he said that the school was NOT at fault at all, they were happy for her to be taking pictures (she did rate some meals 10/10) and had been very supportive of her blog, but it was the Local Authority who had told the school that it wasnt acceptable!
    So please, let's not start knocking the school - it wasn't their decision.
    Radio 4 asked Argyll and Bute council for a statement but got none.

  10. Thanks to witch from:

    Also the linked article states this for those that actually read it

    Also:
    BBC News
    On his Twitter account, the MSP for Argyll and Bute said: "I think the decision is daft and I will be asking the council chief executive to reverse it."

    Wasn't knocking the school, the quality of that food looks terrible. It's no wonder kids see no problem with junk food because a mcdonalds looks healthier than some of those meals and certainly the portion size is bigger. The meals from other countries however, WOW!

    its a shame because she is raising money for charity as well Martha Payne is fundraising for Mary

    Somebody has put up a petition to keep the pressure on Petition: Argyll and Bute Council: Lift the ban on the Never Seconds blog about school dinners | Change.org
