End this food smuggling menace

The Contaminants in Food (England) Regulations 2004 is a harsh law indeed.

"Any person who fails to comply with any of the requirements specified in a notice served under paragraph (1) shall be guilty of an offence and liable on summary execution to a fine…"

It’s disturbing enough that we’ve reintroduced the death penalty for people who import inappropriate food into the UK – but fining people after they’ve been executed seems particularly harsh.

  1. Perhaps if you could finish the quote, it would make more sense, for example, "…and liable on summary execution to a fine prospect of reincarnation as an uncontaminated potato, or perhaps even a wallaby". If you take things out of context, do not be surprised by the results.
