Letter: Obesity fight waste of cash
4:39pm Monday 16th July 2012 in Opinion
Well it seems our council has thought up another stupid idea to waste cash (‘New regime for obese, LT, July 12).
Why waste money on another worthless cause? This government will always help the rich while taking from the poor. They can’t help it – it’s in the Tories’ DNA.
This government needs to take a leaf out of the book some American states: if you suffer from alcohol, drugs or the inability to stop stuffing your face with junk food, you don’t qualify for hand outs.
