I know that if I could write as well I would have written this column word for word (GP, 9 January), apart from having to admit that I, and I suspect others, are starting to ignore some preposterous directives.
I am not recording ethnicity on principle. Nor do I intend to compile an obesity register. Obesity is not a medical condition and we shouldn't encourage people to think we have the solution.
Eat less, do more is all they need to know.
Keep up the good work.
