Nanny has two great obsessions:
2 Children (her acolytes are forever shrilly screeching "think of the children!")
Combine the two obsessions, and you have a deadly and poisonous cocktail.
Nanny and her chums in from our much "respected" local authorities (The Local Government Association - LGA) have let it be known that "dangerously overweight" children will have to be taken from their parents and put into care.
Errmm...isn't that kind of a Nazi type of action? The Nazis in occupied countries took children of "Germanic appearance" back to Germany for "Germanification".
Didn't we send people to their deaths to fight against this sort of thing over 60 years ago?
The LGA has predicted that social services teams would have to take drastic action to improve the health of seriously overweight children. In the view of the Gestapo from the LGA, very "fat" children are victims of "parental neglect".
In the view of the LGA, based on their "logic", social services would have to intervene "more and more" with obese children. The LGA also stated that councils would have to take action against parents who put their children's health at risk, and take the fattest into "care".
David Rogers, the LGA spokesman on public health, said:
"Councils are increasingly having to consider taking action where parents are putting children's health in real danger.
Councils would step in to deal with an undernourished or neglected child, so should a case with a morbidly obese child be different?
If parents place children at risk through bad diet and lack of exercise is it right for a council to keep the child's health under review?
It is vital that councils, primary care trusts and the NHS work with parents to ensure children don't end up dangerously overweight in the first place.
There needs to be a national debate about the extent to which it is acceptable for local authorities to take action in cases where the children's welfare is in jeopardy."
Precisely how will this help the children?
The psychological damage to the child, as he/she is forcefully removed from his/her parents, would massively outweigh any short term possible benefit of weight reduction.
The morbidly obese tend to use food as a "comfort", increase their stress levels by snatching them from their parents and they will simply eat more.
How can people who live in a democracy and claim to believe in a democracy, even contemplate such action?
