Fancy having social services hover over you while you're eating at the dinner table?

What a bunch of nonsense. Dioxins find there way into fat, but then so does most things. As it stands, dioxin levels in humans the environment are actually on the decrease since the 1970's. Why then has obesity only been a problem in the past 20 years, if that?
Also, there is no Government of England and even if there was, why would they be liable?

Says who? You? Better a fat kid with a loving family than a skinny kid that is beaten by his father who's on drugs.
What ya think? Not to mention the history of the people running the ``social services`` being a bunch of pedophiles... where is this kid gonna end up? In a government facility where he will have no family? In a family where he will be abused? In a family where he will be ignored?
Destroying a family because some holier-than-thou think everyone should be 100% fit all the time is some uber BS...
Hell is paved with good intentions, remember that, CONTROL FREAKS.

This is starsi britain where your kids can be taken off you if they get fat
I thought we lived in a free country??
I know obesity is not good and helping people get to a healthy weight is good but you do not take kids away from a loving home and get them adopted out!!
This social services dept has gone way too far and cant understand why we are putting up with this.
Put up with this and your children could be next

Speaking through tears, their 15-year-old daughter said: ‘The social workers should hang their heads in shame. A person’s weight is their own business and only we can do anything about it, not them. My parents are good people and they love us all. The four little ones don’t know what is about to happen to them.’

Read the OP. The State has been involved with this family for 3 years. For 2 of those years the family was living in a Big Brother House and under constant supervision. So if the kids have not lost weight while being monitored by the State for 2 years... what good does it do to keep them from their parents? Obviously even with the State's meddling, the kids are not losing weight. Does that not tell us something?

Yes they should force them to eat things they dont want to eat, thats what keeps them healthy. I take id you dont want kids to have any vaccines or medical care too because they done like them either. How about staying home from school, they dont like that either.
The parents dont love their children, they made no effort to keep them, they deserve to be taken away and placed in the care of people who will do a proper job of bringing them up.

Whats that got to do with these obese children, yes people will be considered overweight when they are healthy like rugby players but thats clearly not the case here, they are just fat.
Its obvious the authorities could tell the difference but you cannot, are you telling me all of them are just muscular?
