A FUTURE Labor government would consider restrictions on fast food television advertising during childrens’ viewing time, Opposition communications spokesman Lindsay Tanner said today.

Mr Tanner said the party had not yet worked out how it could be done, but “we are looking at that issue right now”.

Well, you could nationalise all the television stations. That way no insidious advertising of any kind would be allowed without party approval.

“There is a pretty strong case for taking some actions,” he said on Channel 9.

“The precise nature of what that action might be is a matter for consideration, but clearly there is significant problem there.”

Mr Tanner said he and many others with young children were concerned about them being pressured into eating too much fast food and junk food.

I eagerly await the ALP’s explanation of exactly which foods are ok to eat and which are not. I wonder if they will risk offending their ethnic lobbies by extending the ban to reffo foods like doner kebabs? They surely aren’t any better for you than a bacon burger, even if they do make Allah happy.

Mr Tanner said he and many others with young children were concerned about them being pressured into eating too much fast food and junk food.

“Yes there is an issue there and Labor is looking at that,” he said.

“We do need to take some kind of action but precisely how that might be structured we have yet to determine.”

Here’s an idea for some action to take in the event your kids are eating too much junk food: Stop buying it for them, you gigantic imbecile.
