Sickness benefit review to consider obesity and drug problems.

People who are obese or have alcohol or drug problems could have disability and sickness benefits cut if they refuse treatment, David Cameron has said.

The PM has commissioned a review of the system, which he says fails to encourage people with such conditions to get medical help.

About 100,000 people with long-term, treatable conditions claim Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), the Department of Work and Pensions says.

Campaigners called the plan unworkable.

Mr Cameron has asked Prof Dame Carol Black, an adviser to the Department of Health, to carry out the review.

So, the Government push a diet for decades that almost guarantees obesity and type two diabetes for many, and when they become ill, no benefits for the person who may have contributed to the pot for 30 or 40 years. Nice to see Cameron has lumped this group of people in with drug addicts. Do these morons think people become morbidly obese by choice?
