Fat Cats as Fat as Chavs

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Food Standards Agency has found that the poor mirror the UKs better off citizens in their obesity levels

    This obviously means that the well off are just as culpable in putting a strain on the NHS with their diet induced illesses.
  2. Nah......No fat cat would be seen "dead" in an NHS Hospitial........ :)
  3. Rosemary Hignett, head of nutrition at the FSA said: "The encouraging news from this research is that the gap between the diets of people on low incomes and those of the rest of the population is not as big as some feared.


    You could very well substitute diets for income in this report. It's not really about healthy eating at all, it's really a regurgitated form of the old class war - but wasn't it ever so?


    PS. The wealthy, although obese, have probably full paid for their supposed take up of health-care, in addition to funding 2 or 3 of those fine specimens that comprise the SS Bde.
  4. So when it mentions the poor it doesn't in fact mean the poor per se, but only the unemployed benefits raking in poor.
  5. Sven,

    No, I mean exactly what I wrote. I have taken as a given that the less well-paid subsidise their own care but are unlikely to pay sufficient tax to subsidise the SS Bde.
  6. It's not so much that Chav's living standards are getting better, in fact the poor aren't really that poor anymore thanks to the welfare state, it's just they spend what money they can (after deductions for fags, drugs, lager and plasma tv's on the meter) on sh!te food like turkey twizlers, chips, pizza, gallons of coke (and they wonder why the kids are wild) etc etc.

    Next time your in tesco's or chavsda's have a peek in one of their trolleys, it's Lard Ho!
  7. So what do the middle classes eat that layers that lard on them? Too many cream buns? Set Thai meals for 4?

    The whole premise of the article is that the haves are as fat as the have nots!!
  8. posh lard is still lard :evil:
    the gymn obsessed dieters are a tiny minority.
    living on ready meals and restaurant meals is not going to be any healthier for you :cry:
    should have been money does'nt buy you a healthy diet
