The local council has a cunning plan, however, to reduce that number – text 500 of the buggers each day with a message designed to help them to lose weight

Some folk, though, think the £10,000 estimated cost of the 10 week scheme is . . . money better spent on other ways to help people lose weight than sending them a message telling them to shift their fat arse off that chair

Nathan Troni, 55, from the Cheadle area of the city thought there was a danger of the messages coming across us ‘nagging’ and said – “I’ve already got my wife to do that.”
