Should fat people in Australia be paid to lose weight?
Fat people will be offered cash incentives to lose weight and take exercise as part of a new Government strategy to tackle the obesity epidemic, which could ultimately cost the NHS in Great Britain £50bn a year to treat.
Should overweight people be paid to lose weight? I think not, Stick them with a pin and watch them float off somewhere or anywhere, their early demise will save the taxpayers millions in pension payouts.
Employers will be encouraged to set up competitions with cash, vouchers and other rewards for people taking up a healthier lifestyle.
Similar schemes have worked in the US, while private medical insurance companies in Britain are already offering discounts to people who regularly go to the gym.
Should the overweight be paid to slim? Should employers monitor their employees' fitness regimes?
What is the best way to encourage people to lead a healthier lifestyle?

Or should we allow them to wallow and swallow at the trough regardless.
Or maybe a family exchange program with the Sudan Government, problem there is the fat Aussies could end up in the pot.
