The Prime Minister used social media to get his message across the afternoon. Understand me better. Workers have the right to strike and employers have the right Lock-out. But we must not allow such a foolish waste of large quantities of food. This is indecent, He decided.

In a society like ours, such a situation cannot be tolerated.
