Fatty Johnson Launchs National Movement

Health Secretary Alan Johnson: 'Don't vilify the obese' - Telegraph

Mr Johnson will say: "Obesity is the biggest health challenge we face. ....

"Just as the government has a moral duty to tackle poverty and exclusion, so it also has a duty to address obesity. But this is not a licence to hector and lecture people on how they should spend their lives - not least because this simply won't work."

He will call for a broader approach with all sectors of society, retail, leisure, media, government and voluntary sector involved. ...

Ministers want to see a 'national movement' from the smallest keep fit class to the biggest retailers to join a campaign to tackle obesity.

Who could object to a "national movement" to combat "the biggest threat we face", lots of money to be spent on propaganda, healthy young people exercising in the open air...

BBC - Newsbeat - Health - NHS fit camp aims to cut obesity

...special residential fit camps where they'll spend six weeks losing weight and learning how to lead a healthier lifestyle.... The parents of the children at the camp also have to get involved, and there are weekly check-up sessions after the residential course to make sure all the good things the kids learn are actually put into practice at home. ...The daily routine for the children at the fit camp is demanding.
While most other kids are enjoying their school holidays, these children are up at eight o'clock every morning.
It's then a long day of physical activities like boxercise or basketball sessions....

I think I have found a film of this healthy new idea...

Shouldn't they be wearing kilts and tossing the caber.
