Yup, it's Diane 'Does My Arse Look Big In...Yeah, Silly Question' Abbott. As Bucko points out, making her the shadow minister for health has meant that people are now lectured on obesity by a woman roughly the size of a small shed.
But I have to wonder just what they must have been thinking when she pauses from cramming pies into her gob long enough to suggest this:
Over-protective parents must let their children play in the street to save them from obesity, Labour's Diane Abbott has told the Standard.*boggle*
Ms Abbott, the shadow public health minister, said: "I think London kids are especially at risk because so many mums and dads are fearful about letting them play in the streets. I think parents need to be tougher on their kids' diets to save them from ill-health. Carrying on with the chips and PlayStation 3 culture is not an option."You first, then, eh? Oh, and are you really sure you want to suggest this, given what all the other racemongers have been beavering away at 'proving'?
Comments are, as ever, hilarious, but I did find this one the best:*grin*
The kids seem quite fit to me. Did you see how quickly they were getting away with their looted goods last Summer?
