Jamie Oliver hits out at government

19th October 2011

TV chef Jamie Oliver has hit criticised the UK government’s obesity strategy.

Writing in the Guardian, he said the government has “no clue about how to make sustainable change or how to inspire, enforce or empower public health”. It came after Health Secretary Andrew Lansley unveiled plans to cut five billion calories from England’s diet with the government concerned that eating and drinking too many calories was at the heart of the obesity problem. But Oliver said by simply telling people what they already knew saw the government guilty of engaging in a "complete cop out".
