Hurley snow pic puts Coffey’s ‘old and fat’ nonsense in perspective. But there’s just one thing…

Older and not fat: Liz Hurley (left) is six years older then Therese Coffey (49), who said people are dying of Covid-19 because they are elderly and obese. It seems the agism is all in the Work and Pensions Secretary’s mind. But there is another problem with the photo on the left.

Liz Hurley’s Instagram snow image puts Therese Coffey’s claim, that people die of Covid-19 because they are old and fat, well and truly in perspective.

Coffee is 49; Hurley 55. As the comparison image above shows, health is a matter of individual responsibility (unless there are underlying issues, I should concede for the sake of completeness. I don’t think Coffey has any underlying issues).

Before Coffey criticises other people, it seems clear she should try to set an example herself.

Their attitudes are not normal but they get away with their behaviour because of their elite status.
