Why not just tax the middle classes more so the government can subsidize healthy caesar salads for working class people? Obvious.

Is it true that labour are planning a tax on so-called "family foods" like butter and bread?

EDIT: lol, excuse the spelling in the thread title! Maybe a mod would be so kind as to change it for me??
I think I read something about a tax on Fatty foods to try and curb obesity .. which is a good idea, its for the good of the people :P

Correction. Highly likely with Gordon Brown in charge of the "ministry of thievery and redistribution"
A modern day Robin Hood :rolleyes:
Blissy, redistribution doesn't suggest fairness, it suggests communism.

I prefer being able to determine what's best for me myself, without it being thrust upon me by some half-witted Labour government.

I don't know about that. I think 4 apples would be cheaper than 4 mars bars.

Well yes, but the governement are the ones who have to pay (in the vast majority of cases) for the extra healthcare needed for people as a result of their obesity.

And the redistribution of wealth suggests the eradication of the class system which is a major socialist policy.

True. But I mean more in terms of common lunch/dinner/supper meals.

I think the vast majority of people would accept that the eradication of the class system is a 'good thing'.

Middle classes? It's the super rich you want to tax, they don't spend it anyway. It's the middle class who is always hardest hit by depression and such, taxing them more will hurt.

You said communism, isn't that different to socialism?
