Diane Abbott’s £300 Obesity Bill

You cannot help but laugh at this one. KFC-hating fatty food banner Diane Abbott has been paid £300 to give a speech at the National Obesity Forum annual conference. During her speech she said that the government “places too much emphasis on personal responsibility, without acknowledging that many people do not have the social capital or skills to tackle their own obesity”.

The poor are too stupid to look after themselves, eh Diane? Quite why a Shadow Health Minister is charging money to give speeches on, er, health Guido can’t quite work out. Surely she should do it for free…

    Stuart says:

    Nick Clegg died and was met at the pearly gates by St Peter. St Peter said Clegg could decide where he spent the rest of eternity and took him down in the lift. As the lift doors opened he marvelled at a pristine golf course, buxom leggy women and happy smiling faces. St Peter then showed him heaven, people lying around on clouds reading and cherubs playing the harp.
    Clegg said no offence but he has always wanted to take up golf and proceeded back down in the lift. When the doors opened this time he was in a sewer with a steady stream of smelly effluent spraying everyone. He demanded that the devil explain. The devil smiles and says ” we were campaigning earlier but now we’ve had your vote!!!”

          You are wicked Guido old chap!

          The £300 was for the speech – it was to cover Diane Fatbutts lunch expenses, natch – she has a figure to maintain after all.

          P.S. They seem to have omitted the other £300 to cover taxi fares from Hackney to the hall, from the back of the hall to the front of the hall, from the front of the hall to lunch, followed by dinner, followed by a trip back to Hackney – and you know how much trouble it can be for a black person to hail a cab – it would be even worse if Diane were an obnoxious old sow, which, thankfully, she isn’t – at least not that old.

          Toodlepip, off to straighten out Reinaldo!



          • Bollocks to getting a pseudonym says:

            I thought 300 pounds was her weight.


          • Abbott is an uber hypocrite

            A front bench Labour politician that denies our youth the Grammar school education she enjoyed while her own son is privately educated and is now getting paid to tell fat people how to live while carrying more than a few extra pounds herself is clearly in denial.

            It is never the fault of any Labour politician, Gordon Brown’s failed PFI contracts have nothing to do with Lewisham A&E.

            Labour are the nasty party – just look at B£iar, Brown, Mandleson all happily boodling into the sunset

        The fee, as far as I can work out, is part of an off-white paper she is to present in the HoC , which is a hot air tax, to fund universal rice ‘n peas for “de poor” – £300 is just a working amount. It could be more, it could be even more than more.

It is the price of decent food, that is the problem and the take away culture, domestic science as it was, is not taught, and mothers couldn’t cook so could not teach their daughters/sons.

          Yes agreed but if you are incapable of cooking it for reasons abovementiond the only option is to eat it raw.

            I revolted over 50 years ago at cooked turnips, parsnips and swedes as I was forced to eat them for school dinners when I was quite young. Likewise so-called “sweetbreads”.

    Obesity is very easy to tackle: Stop eating and drinking rubbish.

    Cut all wheat, and avoid ‘diet’ soft drinks / fast food (Fish ‘n’ Chips / Kebabs are fine though) and get a little more exercise and stop smoking. Simples.

    The point, as ever, missed in this ‘debate’ is that those at the bottom end of the social scale really don’t give a f*ck about their health as they have no real interest in doing anything about it. They are quite capable, but with the likes of Abbot fighting their cause, the slow death of suicide by malnutrition is an understandable life choice.

    A fat racist hypocrite she is but even a broken clock is right twice a day. Sugary and fatty foods are known to be addictive and willpower is often not enough when most processed foods contain added sugar and fats. oh did I mention that mz Abbot is a fat racist hypocrite?

    Labour Education. says:

    So people are too thick to diet? Well what do you expect if they have been educated under a Labour government for so long? This is an appalling situation. People should be taught to think for themselves and learn the skills of problem solving for themselves. Labour despise the individual who can achieve this. They much prefer the unhealthy co dependent mindset that is symptom of the collective state mentality which infact disempowers individuals and keeps them dependent on the state to answer all their problems. Disgraceful. Time to teach people the skills to think for themselves and problem solve for themselves.

    Better education. says:

    How difficult is it to teach a bunch of fatsos to google healthy eating and follow the instructions? Flabby Diane has informed us that Labour education is fit for no one, as it reduces a person’s skills to think for themselves and problem solve. It is simple to solve. Fatso just needs to get off sofa and waddle to a computer or smart phone and google healthy eating for dummies.

    £300 to talk about fat? Diane Slabutt isn’t too ****ing stupid to address the ‘issues’ (why has everything got to be a ****** ‘issue’ with these people?)

    That’s it, Diane, blame the Government. But when the government say that fat people can’t be treated on the NHS unless they lose weight, then cry ‘discrimination’!!

    Having that fat moron give a talk on fatness is like having Gordon Brown give a talk on courage or mental health.

    What on earth is this ‘social capital’ nonsense? How does one need it to look in a mirror and realise ‘Jesus Christ I am a fat slob who needs to eat less’?

    Poor old Diane looks as if she’s dined very generously on Dobbin (or Eeyore), so it’s a racing cert. that she knows a lot about galloping fatness.
