I see NHS Medway are at it again. This time they want to restrict the building of fast food outlets.
Fast-food outlets could be banned from operating near schools in Medway as part of an effort to cut child obesity.
More meddling from the Righteous. Their justification is..
The obesity rate among Year 6 children for 2008/9 in Medway is 19.4%, above the national average of 18.3%.
Oh dear you might say. Something must be done for the sake of those poor cheeeldren.
But then in the same article this figure is quoted.
The statistics also showed the rate had dropped from 20.4% in 2007/08.
I think this is power for power’s sake, and a desire to protect these Health
Fascists professionals’* jobs.
It might be a better idea if they just got on with the job that we pay them for. Healing the sick.
I’m off for a burger.
* I use the term professional loosely here, very loosely.
