    This is an absolute joke.

    I wouldn't mind if the tax revenues went on subsidising healthy alternatives.

    He isn't fat anymore. Not like you can blame a chef for being fat anyway but whatever...

    As Viva said, as long as it goes to subsiding healthy alternatives then it's a good idea (and this comes from a crisp junkie).

    There's too many obese people in this country.

    Muscly? What the ****. He's all padded in a thick layer of fat in that picture, no definition, no visible veins. Fat.

    Tbf his 40. Your metabolism slows down a lot at that age.

    Let him be, his hardly obese and is clearly in a healthy state for his age.

    oh my god
    so I'm to become poorer now.
    just because I enjoy sugar foods (in moderation).
    just because certain people around me have to be morons who can't moderate themselves.
    so it's scapegoating of responsibility of the weak/dumb once again - that is what characterises our modern society.

    why can't we just tax fat people for being fat, instead of taxing thin people for eating fat people's food? literally, how can jamie oliver get this problem so ****ing wrong? it's like letting fat people own a "whipping boy". I don't advocate any kind of idiotic tax like this, but at least, if you're going to suggest one, tax the right thing/person!

    I find it really ridiculous the level to which celebrities are so obsessed with pretending to care, they actually try to micromanage other people's lives to create their bull**** public personas.

    Hmm, I don't think of that as fat, he's just a normal size, surely?

    He's quite firmly in the overweight category in the picture. I'd bet pretty close to obese.

    Tax on sugary things that lead to obesity etc. perhaps decreasing prices for fruits and veg will also help aswell as stopping advertising for fast food and choclate etc. on one hand it is for the greater good, yet on the other nobody forces you to buy these products and make yourself fat or obese. Plus im pretty sure a sugar tax will he insignificant and wont really affect sales. I would argue the gov should invest more in health like making pe lessons cumpolsry a few times a week and helping cheaper gyms start up
