Yer its complete horse pish, I was called obese by a doctor even though I was build like a brick Sh*thouse, mind you these days the cements crumbled a bit and I look more like a sh*thouse but I would still argue my BMI

It depends what you're using it for. It is pish as an absolute marker for weight issues but then there is no perfect measure.

Safers AD not being a pedant, but does calipers, water measurement, fat measurement via electric signal etc not set the standard??
Yes, but that takes time and relatively expensive equipment - it costs practically nothing to work out a BMI. It's not just about the figure - it's how you get it! But you're correct in saying those measures give a more accurate idea.
