It was Stoke last year, but got pushed from its first place by Manchestah!
's Funny, I send the same article to our community message board, it got some discussion going, but I found this highly amusing: two overweight residents blamed the council for their (over)weight, because they don't give people on low income discounted memberships to their gyms! Not that their diet had anything to do with it, and off course going to a gym is the only way to exercise!
That's so sad about that 3-year-old though. That amounts to child abuse in my books. Did you see that programme a few weeks ago (actually it was a documentary in 2 parts, only saw the last part), about those 8-year-olds and their families, who were given a "war time" diet for a few weeks? The results were amazing! One of the mums had lost a stone on this diet, which just contained the basics (unfortunately it wasn't vegan or even veggie), and she started crying when she found this out.
It's great taht you did such a good, positive iinterview, with a positive interviewer as well. Makes a change doesn't it?
