It added: "Offenders will be severely punished."

HOW? THEY'RE FUCKING DEAD!

And what use would it be to punish offenders? It's not like they're going to do it again.

OMG a finalist for Miss England has a double-digit size! Little girls will see this and become obese! The world's gonna end! Women, children, and racists first!

"But can the same really be said of Chloe?

"At 5ft 10in, Chloe should have a body mass index, or BMI, (indicating her levels of fat) of 20. Hers is 26.03."


Honestly, it's starting to be noticed that BMI is bullshit. It's too simplistic to be good at indicating levels of fat. Most atheletes are considered overweight by BMI standards because BMI can't tell fat from muscle.

It's even worse when heart patients with normal BMI's have higher death rates from cardiovascular disease than patients classified as overweight.

Even if we take that BMI is worth anything, 26.03 is barely overweight. The range is 18.5-25, not "around 20". Daily Mail goes off the slippery slope once again, and the Pope just might be Catholic.

And she doesn't look half bad. I mean, I'd probably change that god-awful swimsuit, but really, I wouldn't have a problem dating someone like her.
