So here we have those results. I suspect it will come as no surprise to anybody how this all pans out, but I’m going to put Nigel Farage in first because he’s the one who is obviously going to say that fat people are lazy, work-shy scroungers who just need a bit of a kick up the arse and a bit more will power.
"Wouldn't it be funny if McDonald's had a special bay for overweight people so they can park straight outside?"
"I think that we view disability as being something that happens unfortunately to quite a lot of people through no fault of their own - a genetic problem, a horrible accident, mental problems, whatever.
"People don't choose to be disabled, absolutely not. I think it is quite difficult in the case of overweight people that it is a disability, because it is something - it may sound harsh - that they can actually do something about.
"There are some rare exceptions. But if somebody is very overweight and facing a life-threatening operation, the surgeon says 'Lose a couple of stone, come back in six weeks, and we'll do the operation.'"
“We're not suddenly all suffering from a failure of willpower, less morally upright than our grandparents' and earlier generations.
“What we've done is changed our environment. Most critically of all we've moved away from active forms of transport - walking and cycling - to cars, and made the roads so frightening and hostile that few choose those cheap and healthy options.
“There is no magic solution but a range of sensible government measures: making 20mph the standard speed limit everywhere people live, work and shop, providing excellent pedestrian and cycle facilities, limiting advertising of junk food, particularly to children, and tackling fresh food "desserts" would be a good start, and not expensive considering the benefits.
“There's broader cultural/policy issues too: our long-hours culture encourages people to think they don't have time to cook fresh, healthy food, poverty draws parents to apparently cheap and "safe" food they know their children will eat, like chicken nuggets and chips, lack of education on cooking in schools leaves young people without basic skills.”
"Obesity is an increasing problem and poses a very serious threat to our nation's health. That is why we have made tackling obesity, particularly in early life, a key priority."
"As a nation we all have a part to play in addressing our sometimes unhealthy approach to food, weight and physical activity. We want to provide an environment that makes it easier for people to make healthy choices in what they eat and be more active in everyday life.”
Well, I couldn’t find anything she actually said on the subject but the headlines were all about Plaid Cymru introducing a Pop Tax which could help 20000 overweight people in Wales lose weight by adding an extra 20% to the cost of fizzy drinks.
"Their education is suffering, and their health is suffering as well, and they are often then on the early steps towards obesity."
Nick loves to mention the name of the person who asks a question, because it proves he can remember names. In this case it was easy because it was a celebrity called Jamie who was keen to get good free school meals available to everyone and that this would, "prove to be one of the biggest, best achievements in order to address precisely what Jamie’s been campaigning on."
So no help when it comes to deciding who to vote for.
