I don't normally give a feck about fatties, and personally have until now regarded fatness as a sign of weakness. Actually I still stand by that, but I now feel sympathy for those that didn't know they were weak! Just watching Ian Wright confronting "Jerome"'s mother brought a tear of rage to my very dry eye.... Ian "Your son is 51% fat" Mother (bursts into tears, exits stage right, lighting a fag) "Stop stealing my money to buy food!" The irony is that the poor kid is only about 12, and yet his hugely overweight mother is blaming him!! I'm just a novice parent (eldest is 3 yrs old), but I'm fairly sure that an example is expected. I know its just a telly prog, but it seems to be handled pretty sensitively. I just hope that these are extreme examples, and that this disgusting laziness isn't endemic in Britain.
