This is what lies in store, when you go into a store;
For a country whose best-known exports include bacon and pastries, it might sound like an act of economic suicide.
But yesterday Denmark became the first country in the world to impose a tax on fatty foods. Any food with a saturated fat content of more than 2.3 per cent will be taxed at a rate of 16 kroner (£1.85) per kilogram of saturated fat. The move will add the equivalent of 25p to a pack of butter and 8p on a pack of crisps. The move will rekindle demands in Britain, which has far higher rates of obesity than Denmark, for a similar tax.
The cry will be that THIS is the way to “save” the NHS. Let’s start the social engineering on food content. Let’s increase the price of the wrong sort of foods. Let’s increase the price of alcohol. Let’s increase the price of tobacco. I mean it’s not as of there is a recession or anything.
