It certainly looks like the government of Theresa May has given way to the big food lobby.

With the UK’s public healthcare system is complete melt-down, failing to tackle obesity effectively is like scoring three own goals.

  1. I have to agree with Dr Alf and Jamie Oliver,Mrs May’s decisions on obesity are a disgrace and score 4 not 3 own goals.
    She claims to want to help ordinary people and employers are clear in their prejudice against overweight employees which is why they prefer thinner,more productive foreign workers with better attitudes and educations than our own lazy ,overweight and unproductive workers. Caving in to the food lobby is short sighted and will condemn these youngsters to the dole and lumber the taxpayer for years to come.
    Mrs May is supposedly a “Parson’s daughter” committed to public service.
    Judeo Christian ethics does not promote gluttony as a virtue or laziness.
    She needs to be guided by the “Good Book” not by Tory Party donors in the sugar and fast food industry and in the brewing lobby.
