    BBC News - Panorama - Should the UK tax high-fat junk food to cut obesity rates?

    Hit people in the pocket but someone will winge
    No its just an excuse to get more money: smoking, fuel, vat etc...

    On the bright side it might taste nice

    i don't know enough about these proposals to make a judgement on it's effect on democracy, but this bit indicates it's not all one-sided...

    Working alongside them are public interest health and consumer groups including Which?, Cancer Research UK and the Faculty of Public Health

    Atleast they havn't put Jamie Oliver in charge. Our average kids meal has gone from a peice of pizza and some chips to a peice of pizza and 2 cakes, or in some cases just 2 cakes. Brill! Even the "best" kids choosing the "healthiest" option just have pasta every day, because a high carb diet is really healthy, especially with our kids vigorous exercise regimes

    Anyway I thought our kids were too skinny from watching ".......'s next top model"???
