The View from 22 podcast: fat Britain, Westminster reshuffles and Obamacareless

Does Britain have an obesity problem? On this week’s View from 22 podcast, Fraser Nelson discuses the bizarre steps taken by the NHS to deal with our growing weight problem. Do we have such a thing as a ‘fat gland’? Why is Britain’s changing size so rapidly? And according to Fraser, Nottingham is the ‘fattest’ part of our country and deep fried Mars bars really are a delicacy.

James Forsyth and Isabel Hardman also discuss this week’s Westminster reshuffles, what they mean (if anything) for the man for the street and who’s up and who’s down in the the cabinet and shadow cabinet. What do the changes says about the desires of politicians to remain in power as long as possible? Plus, Freddy Gray looks at whether Barack Obama is being reckless with the US economy and how much the Republicans are to blame for the government shutdown.
