Its probably about getting people off their arm chairs away from the television and doing things
Yep, then they go home and do the same, no real difference overall.
Don't get me wrong, I do see the idea behind the scheme, but again, it all boils down to this nanny state attitude, whereby the state should look after those who choose not to look after themselves (and I'm not talking about disabled people here, I'm talking about the idle Grrrs who expect to looked after by everyone else).
It angers me to see the NHS refuse people drugs and treatments for serious illnesses due to cost-cutting or lack of funds to begin with, and then on the other hand, wasting money left, right and centre on crap, and holding peoples hands just because they don't want to take responsibility for themselves.
Would probably be cheaper to get some deal with Nintendo and buy them all a Wii so they can use Wiisports lol.
