Comment on Why we need a tax on junk food by Neil P..
“Of course, the stock objection to suggestions that the government should introduce fiscal measures that encourage people to adopt better diets is that it is a “nanny state” measure. But surely anyone who objects to “nannying” believes that we must each take full responsibility for our actions, and their consequences. All a tax would do is ensure that those of us who make the choice to consume junk food pay a price for it that more closely reflects its true cost.” <<< Sarah I have long been saying this, just not quite as eloquently as you.
