Dangerously overweight children will have to be taken from their parents and put into care because of Britain's worsening "obesity epidemic", council leaders have warned.There is a long list of other problems that will result from a million kids being taken from their parents.
One million children will be clinically obese within four years on current trends, storing up future problems from heart disease, strokes, high blood pressure and diabetes.
These health problems occur in adults, so why don't they go after the fat adults instead? Perhaps they could start by cutting off welfare benefits to fat people.
Update: As British official denied this, the newspapers have reported that it is already happening.
