Treat the thin

Alan McKinney (Letters, 28 
February) doesn’t specify the “consequences” that should apply to the obese so I assume he is suggesting they be allowed to suffer or die for the heinous crime of taking risks with their health, but I do wonder why he’s stopping at the fatties.

Surely anyone who has ever smoked, drunk or taken drugs is also unworthy of NHS treatment. And you’re not telling me that road users are unaware of the risks that they are exposing themselves to?

What about those selfish devils who get injured playing sport. Where is the personal 
responsibility, I ask you?

NHS treatment should only be available to teetotal, non-smoking, thin people with nice smiles who never place themselves in a situation that might be deemed as exposing themselves to unnecessary health risks.
