Seeing this headline, and reading this article in the Guardian, I wonder if David Cameron and his chums have been reading this blog for the last four years? This is a good article – it’s worth a read. Check it out!
In case you are unfamiliar with this blog, let me remind you of our views. Like Cameron, I believe that it is time to call the obese to account or risk losing benefits. Surely, this is only fair, when the NHS is struggling with real health challenges, like cancer?
However, care is required to ensure the underlying reason for obesity. On the other hand, if it’s down to alcohol and a diet rich in junk-food, there’s surely a case to cut benefits?
