    Overbearing left wing state trying to crush enterprise? How predictable.
    Overzealous agents of capitalism stamp down on community-focused cooperative enterprise*

    Pray tell, what would happen?
    In London, are you unclear about what would happen? How about an explosion of substandard 'food' offerings on dodgy stalls throughout the city, half of them spreading salmonella and the other half passing off fake food?

    Other countries seem to manage just fine, maybe you just dislike people being forced to use common sense.

    Which countries are you talking about? Most big cities around the world supervise public food selling.

    There have always been stories about people getting sick from eating street food in Thailand, sufficiently for people to blog about how to avoid it.

    I agree to an extent though that these things can be over-exaggerated and a little common sense goes a long way. I would guess that people are more vulnerable to food-transmitted illness in tropical countries than in Europe.

    People just get sick from food, whether it be abroad or at home, it doesn't really matter. Even with all our licensing and checks we still allow food outlets to operate with 0 rated hygiene standards.

    I think they are also more prone to them abroad because of foreign bacteria which the body has not built an immunity to.

    I was in Wales recently and by law there, every food outlet has to display their hygiene rating prominently. Seems to concentrate their minds wonderfully, nearly all have excellent ratings.
