Make everyone pay at the point of service, that would stop the wasters and shirkers

So if faced with a choice of 20 fags a day, or health care ? Up to you how you spend your money ( or benefits cheque)

not really, i am sure they would always make it free for the wasters and shirkers.

It's just around the corner trust me.....

Free food.

Think benefits should be paid in vouchers that can't be exchanged for booze, fags or tattoos

But that's another rant

I doubt your average benefits waster would understand opera

Having a Latin O level helps

Waste of time arguing, the do-gooders will insist the poor, the infirm, the disabled and those on benefits can't pay and shouldn't pay (prob biggest users groups) so all that would be left is the working minority to be fleeced again so fuck it, leave it like it is.

Maybe we should get rid of the do-gooders ?

Also at a time when half the world is starving or suffering malnutrition problems it is ethically, morally and just plain wrong to be fat.

No one has a gland problem, it is not in your genes, and you cannot be big boned. The laws of Physics are very simple if you put in more fuel than you use up in energy you will be fat, so either do more or eat less, or both, but surgical means to correct this rather than telling them home truths is a disgrace.

If they were told lose weight or we'll take your money off you, it would be more appropriate.

Surgical means..... Cut their hands off so they can't stuff their faces ?

I like your thinking Dave

Cut their balls off so they can't bred any more scroungers

I might be wrong but I reckon the obese cost more to the NHS than smokers. Smokers pay a huge amount of tax on fags which more than covers the cost of any cancer treatment they need later on in life. But the cost of treating type 2 diabetes (which is largely caused by obesity) makes up more than 10 per cent of the NHS budget and is only set to rise. Not sure what the answer is - tax on fatty, sugary food? Not sure this would work.

Compulsory euthanasia for anyone with a BMI of over...........

Or for the do-gooders the higher your BMI the smaller your benefit cheque or the higher your income tax rate

I am surprised by how much a gastric band costs...

In some parts of the world they put collars on Cormorants so that they can catch fish for their owners, the collars stop them from eating the catch!

Surely this idea could be developed to provide a cost effective alternative to expensive surgery?

Like a noose ?

Is this another thread about fat people?

18/07/2014 at 18:04

My BMI is high because I do have big bones and a fair amount of muscle, but last week the hospital told me that there wasn't enough fat on me.

I shall put myself forward for euthanasia
