Broxtowe MP Anna Soubry has caused uproar by suggesting that there is a link between being poor and being obese.

The Tory Health Minister told a national newspaper that it was ‘heartbreaking’ that people from deprived backgrounds were not getting the right nutrition due to ‘an abundance of bad food’.

“When I go to my constituency, in fact when I walk around, you can almost now tell somebody’s background by their weight,” she told The Daily Telegraph.
