Re: [UK news] Proposed "Fat tax"

What about the argument though that if you eat rubbish junk food you are more likely to be ill, therefore costing the state more in medical care....so tax the fat bloaters at source to pay for the medical care they will eventually need.

I reckon that's their real thinking, and they just dress it up by saying it will help people be healthier.
