British Prime Minister Boris Johnson acknowledges that British overweight is more common than other Europeans. Johnson said in a radio interview on Monday that he believes that something should be done about obesity in the UK.
“I have always had a very tolerant view of being overweight,” said the Prime Minister, “but if you look at the statistics and the pressure on health care, I’m afraid we are considerably fatter than people in other European countries, except the Maltese for some reason. “
Johnson added that he considers British obesity to be a real problem. “Everyone knows this is difficult, but I think we should name it.”
The Prime Minister himself says that he lost a lot of weight after he was infected with the corona virus. Johnson, who is known for his sometimes eccentric performances, said in an interview with Mail on Sunday newspaper that he now feels as fit as a fiddle, and pressed on several times to prove it.
