An overweight detective who took 76 sick days a year has won a payout after her bosses told her to stop drinking “gallons of Coca-Cola” to improve her diet.
Detective Constable Kerry Moth, who said she felt humiliated after being told to take more responsibility over her diet by a higher ranked officer, was awarded £10,000 compensation on Monday.
The government can tell you to stop being a fatty lardbucket, the government can tax you out of being obese and costing the NHS a fortune, but Lord Forbid anyone ever actually says stop being a fatty lardbucket.
Hmm, this might not be quite the right way around in fact. Possibly, even, your boss gets to tell you and the government doesn’t.
