Infantilising the population

Taking prissiness to new highs, certain Danish supermarkets are refusing to stock fizzy drink bottles that have been boosted from half a litre to 600 mililitres, because ''It is the wrong signal to send'.

The signal in this case is in connection with the 'obesity' battle, so perhaps the retailer will also stop stocking sugar, sweets, cakes, alcohol or just about anything other than brown rice and tofu.

Well done Denmark - looks like the notion of personal responsibility is well and truly dead.

People who want said drink will just have to take their custom elsewhere. Viva la free market!

Absolutely. That one of the establishments is the Co-Op should surprise no one, but the other owns, inter alia, Netto.

Cue the urban legend involving two arguing youths:

"Your mum's a slag and she shops at Netto!"

"She does not shop at Netto".
