Theresa May makes a jarring admission about eating mouldy jam
It’s one way of trying to endear yourself to the public…
With Theresa May stuck in an impenetrable Brexit impasse, members of the public could be forgiven for thinking that the prime minister’s daily struggles are not especially easy to relate to.
The PM allegedly told cabinet ministers yesterday that she will not throw away a jar of jam if it has gone mouldy on top. Instead, she is said to have advised colleagues that she scrapes off the mould and eats the good preserve left underneath.
Her advice - which fits with that offered by chefs and health experts - came during a discussion on how to reduce food waste during Tuesday’s cabinet meeting.
May said once the mould is removed the rest of the jam is “perfectly edible”, a Whitehall source told the Daily Mail.
It comes 20 months after the PM revealed that the naughtiest thing she ever did was 'running through fields of wheat' as a child.
Westminster is on tenterhooks for the next personal revelation…
