Question

Is the Mayor concerned that the decision by the Chancellor to buy a burger from Byrons in advance of the spending review was a poor choice, given his previous assessment that McDonald's variants are " absolutely bursting with nutrients.", and concern over the outlet's practices in influencing buying behaviour and contribution to obesity is in his view "classic liberal hysteria about very nutritious, delicious, food - extremely good for you I'm told - not that I eat a lot of it myself," and does he now regret making these comments during the Olympics, considering 1 in five child Londoner's are obese?
