Here come the Fat Police. Again.



The chin-rich environment that is Ivan Lewis has some news for the nation's parents:

"From September this year, parents of children who have been weighed and measured at school could automatically receive their child's results in a bid to get parents to be more aware about healthy lifestyles, and help their children achieve a healthy weight, Health Minister Ivan Lewis announced today".


Isn't that nice? How, I wonder, will the letters be worded? 'Junior is a fatso, has greasy hair and smells'? Will there be scope for arguing the toss, or claiming that it is all down to his or her glands?

Presumably the parents of the various wobbly masters and misses are incapable of persuading their charges to stand on the scales, or should said scales be inadequate cannot quite bring themselves to make the journey to the nearest council weighing station.

According to the BBC, they are forbidden from using the word 'obese' in case it is seen as 'counterproductive'.

This hasn't pleased the National Obesity Forum, whose spokesperson revels in the name 'Dr Tam Fry'...

I agree with the National Obesity Forum. It has taken me 43 years to reach my current glorious girth, these little sods are getting ahead of themselves. Perhaps their spokesperson Dr Tam Fry could change his name by deed poll to 'Dr Tam Poach' to encourage the others?
