OBESITY




OB-S-TY- shouts out from the posters across the UK
-Are we unwilling to see the whole word?  Do we have to hide it because? Yes we are ashamed, ashamed that we don’t have enough will power, ashamed because we make excuses to ourselves.
‘It’s the government,
         it’s the supermarkets,
                 its MacDonald’s,
everyone except ourselves.
                 I have big bones, it runs in my family, we are all big’

We should admit we are OBESE and not hide the word.

Some figures- it will cost the NHS 17 Billion this year to treat its effects

Some Diseases attributable to Obesity
Heart disease and stroke.
·              High blood pressure.
·              Diabetes.
·              Some cancers.
·              Gallbladder disease and gallstones.
·              Osteoarthritis.
·              Gout.

ANGRY yes of course I’m angry because it’s so UNNecessary.
Half the world is starving and the other half is gorging itself;
And yet it is so simple.
YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT

You know the BAD FOODS- you know what you should eat and what you should avoid so why don’t you START TODAY

1  Weigh yourself regularly – ideally every day
2. Eat less- Eat Better
3 Take regular exercise- walk 30 mins. 3x a week

It’s as EASY as THAT

I'm going in


‘I’m going in’ was the phrase used by the shooter as he prepared his arsenal of guns to mow down innocent men and women in a synagogue in Pittsburgh recently. 
It is a phrase used in war- was that what he thought he was fighting, a war against the Jews; a people who have espoused peace for over seven thousand years; a people who have been persecuted, discriminated against and the final infamy, gassed and incinerated in the worst atrocities the world had ever seen?

How had he reached that point in his life? What had convinced a fellow American that to kill innocent people at prayer was in some way making the world a better place. Call him bigoted, insane any word to avoid saying the truth that he like millions of others had been fed a diet of hate and blame against anyone who is ‘other’- other in colour creed or belief. Yet he was a product of a nation built on ‘other’, created from the hopes and dreams of millions of immigrants displaced by the very forces that he is now identifying with.

Why Brexit is a mistake


Why Brexit is a mistake

In the First World War (1914-1918) twenty million people were killed and 21 million were wounded.  By 1932,14 years later Fascism had arisen in Germany under Hitler and seven years later, the Second World War (1939-1945) had broken out, killing 60 million people.

Since 1945- the end of World War Two, no conflict has occurred in Europe, a period of seventy-three years of peace. Is this a coincidence or did the establishment of the EU play a pivotal role?

There can be no doubt that the close ties between the members of the EU based on law, trade and cooperation is the deciding factor.

But once again Fascist movements are arising in Germany, France and many other EU countries. Anti-Semitism, a barometer of tolerance is reaching extreme proportions.

The UK’s break from Europe could herald a cascade of leavers-other countries are already making noises in this direction. This could lead to only one result- a Third World War. With the sophisticated weapons including the nuclear bomb available, the mortality figures would be astronomical threatening the very existence of mankind.
            
It’s not too late for the UK to step back from the brink and learn the lessons of history.
