David Drew must love it..... I hate it

A motion in Parlaiment from the Labour MP David Drew all about Marmite

That this House applauds the aim of the Welsh Assembly Government of promoting healthier food in schools; is concerned however that councils may be taking this welcome initiative too far by banning Marmite in breakfast clubs in schools; recognises that Marmite is relatively high in salt; but asks for common sense to be applied as a scraping of marmite or equivalent yeast-based spread can be part of a balanced diet, and a ban may be seen as counter productive in the quest for healthy living as it produces negative publicity.
Let's watch and see what evil sick weirdo MPs support his motion because of their perverted tastebuds.

At that point a dark mark can be placed against their name for finding a sticky brown yeast based prodcuts enjoyable. Did I mention that Marmite and those who consume it are evil too?

Update: Janet Dean, Labour MP for Burton, ought to support the motion because that is where the Devil's Oil is made.

I loved your blog, but your anti-marmite views both of product and those who love it could cause you to lose a loyal reader!

I am not evil, despite quite liking Marmite, and supporting LFC.

p.s. I like marmalade too, it's not an either/or.

Is it not possible to like both Marmalade and Marmite? Or does that just make me a perverted sicko?

Corrected "Wlesh" thing, was reading something else at the time of writing.

Jules, you are a perverted sicko I;m afraid. proceed directly to Hell, do not pass Go. Do not collect a Government mortgage.

I love Marmite - unfortunately I have just been diagnosed with high blood pressure so need to drastically reduce my salt & alcohol intake.

So my daily Marmite on toast will be confined to weekends, Christmas and my birthday.

I miss the Marmite more than the alcohol - how perverted and sick is that?

I confess that, like Jules, I am a perverted sicko, and commend

to your readers.

The number of people in Burton who work at the Marmite factory and would be more likely to vote Labour if Janet Dean supported the motion are far outweighed by those that live in the stench cloud of the manufacturing process. The pain of the marmite cloud lives with me to this day 15 years after I moved. I still have to resist the urge to smash every bottle I see.....

mmmmmm maramalade and hot buttered toast - tis ambrosia indeed.

Marmite is of the very devil himself, but if people wish to spread the gunge from the bottom of beer brewing vats on their butties, who are we to argue?

A love of Marmite is the true test of Englishness... those who disagree are definately suspect, probably foreigners, possibly even Americans!

Marmite rocks!

It's that antipodean rear-axle grease called Vegemite they should ban.

What could be nicer than melted Wensleydale on Marmite-spread Vogels topped with a poached egg?

Don't worry torymory, all that stuff about salt and high blood pressure is pure invention.

Keep right on with the Marmite, it's the food of angels.
