Re: What do think about michael Buerk

I am currently watching a TV programme where Michael and a group of other people are travelling through the potteries on a canal barge
He seems a nice chap .

Having reported on the famine in Ethiopia some years ago he may find obese people not to his taste..

It's an old argument isn't it. Yes obese people are killing themselves but then so are alcoholics, smokers, drivers, swimmers and tourists. Where does it end? I know.... a book.

He makes a good point. Obese people, who are overweight through eating too much, as well as people who smoke, drink too much or take illegal drugs should be at the very end of the queue for NHS treatment, imo.
