Like the UK’s recent general election, the Brexit will come down to simple, bite-size messages with which the public can readily identify. The 2015 election highlighted just how important economic prosperity is to UK voters, so I agree with this article.

In my mind, the media, government and health profession are clearly not doing enough to effectively challenge obesity.

Take this article from the Guardian. It’s in the ‘Oh dearie me category’. It’s a safe article for the Guardian citing third-party evidence. The Guardian does not take the risk of proposing or identifying with actions that will be effective in reducing obesity.

The Guardian and the rest of the media are frightened of upsetting the obese because they are an important and growing part of society. Pardon the pun!

Surely, it’s the government’s responsibility to action and de-politicize obesity?
