Katie Hopkins has launched another tirade against overweight people, focusing her attentions on the NHS's new plan to offer free WeightWatchers courses to patients in need.

Speaking in her column in The Sun, Katie said: "Last time I looked, the NHS was supposed to be for sick people.

"There isn’t enough money for people in desperate need.

"Cancer patients would love to get their hands on the wonder-drug Avastin because it could help them to live a bit longer."

She added, scathingly: " Cancer is a cruel killer. It creeps up on us when we aren’t expecting it.

"But cake is not cancer. A doughnut does not creep up on you."

She went on to slam 'fatties' for making excuses, insisting we need to 'look after' our bodies and start realising the 'cost of making bad decisions at the bun shop'.

Her final message?

"You eat too much. You move too little. You are fat. Now own the problem.

"If you can afford to eat yourself fat, you can afford to pay to go to WeightWatchers, if you think that is the answer."

Do you agree with what Katie Hopkins has to say? Should the NHS offer free WeightWatchers memberships to overweight people, or is it a waste of funds?
