(not satire – it’s the UK today!)

DANGER! The following two facts must be kept well apart – mixing them could be explosive.

Fact No. 1

New research published today shows that childhood obesity in the UK is soaring and around a half of children in the country don’t take even one hour of exercise a day.

Fact No. 2

The government is selling off two school playing fields every month.

WARNING!  To avoid serious risk of explosion, NEVER EVER be careless enough to mention these two facts together.

Oh shit. I think I just have.

Actually, obesity is likely to be linked to the soft drinks industry. Here’s an excellent article about that:
