Only in this healthist political climate can one read a story and be moved to laughter and anger in equal measure.
I've had stand up rows with lardy-arsed fuckwits who have condescendingly moralised about the "wonderful" smoking ban. One particularly wobble-bottomed cock, for example, in between breathing like Darth Vader deprived of Strepsils, laughed contemptuously when I suggested that his size would attract the attention of the righteous in due course.
He will be mightily surprised at this, then.
Doctor demands tax penalties for the obese
A LEADING doctor has slammed fat people for being a drain on the NHS.
Dr [X, see later], chairman of Tameside Primary Care Trust and a British Medical Association representative, said obesity is costing the north west region £680m a year.
One-sided statistic from a doctor? Tell me it ain't so.
He has called for new tax credits for people with a healthy weight, those who exercise and mothers who breast feed their babies as well as a tax on fatty foods. And he says we should stop giving people who are too fat to walk free motorised scooters and make all school dinners healthy.
Not his money, see? Expanding the public sector is no problem at all. Our taxes are an inexhaustable source. I mean, do these ridiculous dickwads ever cast a glance at the economic principle of marginal returns?
A £680m 'problem' will not be solved by spending even more taxpayer cash in throwing complications at an already over-expensive failure of tax policy?
Oh yeah, did you notice, it's yet another dictatorial NHS doctor? So what is this prick's provenance?
The former Ashton GP and British Medical Association representative says people need to change their lifestyles to cut their risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and many types of cancer.
The BMA again. Seriously, are we even surprised anymore?
Need to change? Listen, you quite astounding moron, as the Mash quite rightly points out, there is no 'we' here.
"Once again the BMA is talking about alcohol being a threat to 'public' health as if that's an actual thing.
"There is 'my' health, which is 'mine', and 'your' health which is 'yours', but there is no 'our' health. D'you see?
You look after your health, we will look after ours. We pay - a fucking lot of money, as it happens - for you tossers to fix us when we are damaged. What you do with your life is your own affair. What we do with ours is no damn business of yours.
Here is the very best part of the irony, though.
"For example, motorised scooters are provided free to morbidly obese patients with weight-dependent arthritis, when the best remedy for these people would be to walk through their pain or avoid excess weight gain in the first place."
This arrogant state-paid medic is advocating inflicting pain and social exclusion on the overweight to teach them a lesson. Let the bastards suffer is his approach. He doesn't attempt to differentiate between those for whom obesity is self-inflicted, merely gene-related, or even a consequence of dullard health staff who (as is rather common) misdiagnose. No, his sole method of determining the unworthy is an arbitrary BMI index score, such as the one which found a 5 year old kid, whose ribs were clearly visible, as obese back in May.
To fat twats everywhere who thought the smoking ban was a good idea because it didn't affect you, there is no sympathy whatsoever from me surrounding this new assault by the righteous - you asked for it. The difference is that I will enthusiastically fight for your right to respect, based on your merits or otherwise, as much as you failed to bother with mine.
To the quite hideous health service employee who is spouting this nonsense, you have a very short memory.
The human condition, doctor, as you should be aware, is predisposed to singling out those who are different, and by personal opinion therefore inferior, in some way to themselves. It is a vindictive trait which is shameful to the human race in general. Unfortunately, however much one tries to close down such hatred, new avenues will always emerge.
This doctor's attitude appears to be 'they're all the same, them fatties. None worthy of respect'.
For a doctor named Kailash Chand to single out a section of society as being homogenous and deserving of opprobium, irrespective of individual circumstances, is an incredible example of forgetfulness and hypocrisy.
