Waste Not want not, oh, and pass the caviar!

Gordon Brown came up with a priceless comment at the G8 yesterday, along the lines of waste not want not.

If we threw away less food then we would buy less and so prices would not be quite so high, so we would save twice!

Fair enough, however this message was delivered at a summit costing something like $280 million (yes you read that right) and involved an 8 course lunch followed by a 10 course dinner.

You can't blame Gordon Brown for that, but you do have to wonder which 42 carat plonker thought up the idea of having such a lavish summit to discuss poverty and high food prices!

The Sun has this on "waste not want not", and this in its Sun says, whilst the BBC has this on the G8.
