How did I miss this?

I am considering making this blog a party-political free zone next year, election politics are so very tedious. The only thing that is stopping me is that occasionally, making fun of politicians, is worth the energy it takes to read about this one. Maurice Williamson weighs into the debate on the 'obesity epidemic':

If some people can't lose weight no matter what. how come there were not fat people in the Nazi concentration camps?
Concentration camps? Of course that's the solution to the 'obesity epidemic' why didn't anyone think of it sooner. That's the way to make my body socially acceptable.

Although rest assured Maurice Williamson doesn't actually want to put us in concentration camps:
When Sainsbury asked Mr Williamson on air if it was wise to use such an analogy, the MP replied: "Maybe it wasn't".

But he said it was a good example of people getting a very low level of nutrients and working hard.

"No one's saying put them in a concentration camp but it is important to know that if you are working hard burning calories and not taking them into your mouth you won't put on weight."
He does understand that people died from having a low level of nutrients and working hard doesn't he?
