Conservatives’ Boob

The Conservatives have put out a new video on YouTube with the aim of highlighting the long-term effects of Gordon Brown’s economic policy. Unfortunately the video features a baby being fed formula milk from a bottle. This is a double boob(!) for David Cameron’s Tories. Don’t they know that breastmilk is free? They are doing the public a great disservice by promoting the expensive and inferior substitute – formula – at a time when many families are seeking ways to reduce their outgoings. Then there is the fact that encouraging more women to try breastfeeding would reduce the future burden on the health service because of the long term health benefits of breastfeeding for both mothers and babies .



Perhaps they were keen to ensure that their video was not removed considering that Facebook has labelled pictures of breastfeeding babies as ‘obscene’.
