Dying patients are denied drugs but the obese get £425 from the NHS to diet
Ignoring the savings later on, clearly. The really amusing thing is this is opposed by Anne Widdicombe, presumably thiking the best way to lose weight is to go on reality TV and be ritually humiliated in front of millions every week?
These grossly obese people should not be allowed to receive NHS treatment until they can show that they are losing weight.

Roger from brighton resists the urge to have a go at Gordon Brown for once
Stop shovelling food in your mouth - you'll save a hell of a lot more than £425!
What next? Are we going to pay alchies to stop boozing? Whatever happened to personal responsibility?

Simplistic view that, Lucy.
And now a sad indictment of Mail readers. This comment...
I am stuck in the middle - I have had surgery and am unable to exercise. Also because of back [ osteoporosis ] pain it is not possible for me to do excersises
This is leading me to be obese, Please do do not tar eey one with the same brush - It is not a happy situation I m in.

...has a lower score than this one...
Why not FINE them £425 if they don't lose weight? Does tax payers' money always have to be thrown around as though there's no tomorrow?

2009 will go down in history as the the BRIBE CULTURE year.

Another Labour stunt to appeal to the low life face stuffing slobs who dont know the meaning of restraint.
What about caring for the genuine sick and ill people who are placed at risk every time they are dumped in a corner of a bug infested hospital that no one can be bothered to clean up properly.
Start doing your job and save patients lives and improve their well being instead of these stupid stunts.
How insensitive can this NHS and wretched Government get? A lot worse we all know.
Bring back the Matrons with rigid disciplines to bring the service up to scratch NOW.
