    in the UK. It's funny, these PC wieners who cry about bullying, who call others bigots, have no problem bullying smokers, hating smokers, and persecuting them.

    Inb4 USMB resident fat fux post about how great this is.

    When I was a kid, there was MAYBE one fat kid in every class. Now it's just the opposite. This is a serious health problem, not a "lifestyle" choice.

    I love how the left claims that the "slippery slope" is a fallacy.....

    The UK has proved that completely wrong....

    If the "slippery slope" is a fallacy then so is precedence......

    As the old saying goes - you give an inch and you'll lose a mile...

    Not surprised. The UK has become a complete laughing stock. Hard to believe those people practically ruled the world once.

    IMO, who cares - not the governments business.

    Freedom is allowing individuals the freedom to make their own decisions and live/die with them.

    Truth is - some kids are just fat - then they grow up, they hit a growth spirt and as adults are just fine....

    I don't think sitting on their asses playing video games helps but that doesn't change our biology as a species.
