Coming untucked

Have your say

I was outraged to learn about the latest nanny-state interference – the banning of tuck shops in state schools in England.

This is disgraceful. The powers that be are claiming that this will stop the rising levels of obesity among children.

I really fail to see how. If children want to eat sugar, they will get their hands on it elsewhere.

For years school tuck shops have been a place where children can start to learn about money and make their own choices on how they spend theirs.

Many people will have fond memories of tuck shops. I hope this nonsense is not brought to Scotland.
