Angry dad Adam Martin, 31, has now taken his three children, Harry, four, George, five and Amelia, seven, out of the school after losing all faith over the lunch dispute.
Gas engineer Adam said: “I feel like our freedom of choice has been taken away.
Yup! Because it has. And they are totally cool with it. More than that, they’re proud of it…
Milefield Primary School are proud of their decision to ban pack lunches.
Headteacher Paula Murray said: “We’re not forcing anyone.”
Yes. You are. In plain English, that’s exactly what you are doing.
“We’re encouraging the promotion of healthy eating and it’s had such positive impact and we’re only into day four of the actual programme being run out in the school. “
What ‘positive impact’? It must be utterly amazing to weigh off against the loss of choice, yet you can’t even elucidate?
“The parents have the choice of taking their children home if they don’t want them to have a school meal.
Parents where both work – away from home – don’t. So, you are indeed forcing them to accept school lunches.
“We have got to work towards what’s best for our children and a large proportion of children in the school – over 97 per cent of parents are in favour of the changes.”
‘Our’ children? They aren’t yours. And have you never heard of ‘the tyranny of the majority’?
