Ed­u­ca­tion – not nanny state, please

Birmingham Post - - FEATURE -

DEAR Ed­i­tor, What a load of codswal­lop the obe­sity cri­sis is. In my fam­ily there were eight of us grow­ing up in the 50s and 60s, we were all slim and could eat any­thing that we wanted.

We now have a nanny state who want to con­trol what we eat.

These busy­bod­ies should do some­thing positive like sort out ed­u­ca­tion and sport in our schools, not bring out a su­gar tax or pok­ing their noses into hit­ting us with a tax on sweets, pud­dings and pas­tries.

Get off your back­sides and go into schools and ed­u­cate our chil­dren, not pun­ish them with this pa­thetic tax.

J Cross, Kitts Green, Birm­ing­ham
