Attack of the fat police

Children are now being listed alongside victims of child abuse because their parents are letting them become obese. This is both a grotesque intrusion into private family life, and likely to distract official attention away from real victims of abuse — leading to more cases such as Victoria Climbié.

This is a worrying thing. With the goverment demanding to know how much every 5 and 11 year old weighs, then there are some serious worries. I wonder if this is the reason they want the children weighed?
