I agree. Although a lot of healthy food isn't healthy, just crap packaging by corporate bell ends. Maybe they need to put in a scale that is clearly labelled on all foods, the healthier it is the cheaper it is, like with the energy rating of a house or the hygiene ratings in restaurants etc. If its A rating its healthy and 50% cheaper than D rated version of the same food.
This is just another subject close to everything else that is wrong with this dump. Everything is taxed, everything is a tax on another tax. Nothing is tax free if you look close enough.
Just look at the NHS (before you say anything the NHS is one of them calling for a tax on junk food), I pay my NIS, and enough damn tax on ciggs which goes to the NHS, more tax than is actually spent on smokers by the NHS. I have never been ill but the thousands I have already paid into the NHS I damn well expect the care there for me when I need it. What I don't expect is everything else taxed to pay for it when everyone else walks into this midden [Midden - good word, look it up] and gets it all for nowt.
Its not nice and its not right but a lot of it comes down to parents who can't afford children but have them anyway because the state pays.
I have 2 kids, I get nothing extra from the state other than that which everyone gets. But I'll be damned if my children will eat shit and/or go cold. By the end of it I have no more money and maybe less than most people who can only afford to be lazy and junk feed their brats and I have significantly less money than those arseholes that pump kids out for cash, 11 kids = £60k of benefits a year. The Chinese system is pretty bad but the worse things get the more you think... maybe, just maybe...
Hmm I think I may need to rant... ok here goes.... kidding, I'll end up as some drivelling keyboard warrior. I have some strong views but these have all grown from past history just like a lot of us on here, we all have our crosses to bare.
Sorry if my comments have offended anyone, I have not intended to do so.
