This has to be some kind off sick joke

MPs celebrate UK's kebab industry entrepreneurs
Eighty MPs have got together to launch a competition in praise of one of the UK's favourite delicacies: the kebab.

Restaurateurs and industry figures attended a reception in Parliament, with Turkish Delight, in Chorlton, Greater Manchester, named best venue in the British Kebab Awards.


Last year food scientists for Hampshire county council found that doner kebabs were the fattiest takeaways. One contained 140g of fat, twice the maximum daily allowance for women, and the calorific equivalent to a wine glass of cooking oil. And 60% of the kebabs tested were high in trans fat, which raises cholesterol levels.

Research by the UK's Food Standards Agency in 2006 found that 18.5% of doner takeaways posed a "significant" threat to public health, and 0.8% posed an "imminent" threat.
And Trading Standards officers have found doners with up to 22% fat, and up to 12g of salt - that's two heaped teaspoons, double the recommended daily intake.
