Things are getting scary out there. Just remember this could be coming here, as the extreme idealogues of the baby boomer generation seems to have turned into the new fascists thinking more and more regulations will bring them the world they desired. Odd how they forgot that word "FREEDOM". This is just more tyranny. Lest you think this is just England, it's happened here but not to a whole family. That said social engineers of all sorts give me a bad taste in my mouth.
Anyhow govt social workers are telling this family that all their kids may be taken away.
Four obese children are on the brink of being permanently removed from their family by social workers after their parents failed to bring their weight under control.
In the first case of its kind, their mother and father now face what they call the ‘unbearable’ likelihood of never seeing them again.
Their three daughters, aged 11, seven and one, and five-year-old son, will either be ‘fostered without contact’ or adopted.
Hey it's like America there, where the cheap crap food is far cheaper then the healthier stuff. But the government won't deal with that in the UK [or here for that] matter, they'll just tell these people, we are going to take your kids away. By the way, there are SOME social workers out there, who are petty, brainwashed, extreme liberals who love their roles as nanny-state tin-pot dictators and their lust for power over individuals, be forewarned!
What is scary is by American standards, this family is "LARGE" but far from extremely obese, anyone with two brain-cells left to run together, could look at the mother and father and think of genetics. So not only would these children lose their parents, most likely they will lose their siblings. Here too you see the false myths about weight being forced on people for oppression.
