Having created crowds of smokers outside every pub in Scotland it's on with the next crusade:
EVERY schoolchild will have to undergo an obesity test in their first year at primary school, in the latest controversial attempt by ministers to force Scots to improve their health."Controversial". You can say that again. Apart from the sheer disgust I feel about this latest push towards the fascist state, a couple of questions occur to me.
Five-year-olds will be weighed and measured by health workers to assess whether or not they are clinically overweight.
First: can the government possibly insist that private schools "weigh and measure" children?
Second: how long will it be before one of the state measuring operatives is charged with paedophilia?
