Consuming The Harvest

While Pottering About At Home In Norfolk

Yes! Let’s Tax Chocolate, Please!!

with 2 comments

They’re” talking about taxing chocolate.  Well, isn’t it about time, too?!

Tax smoking materials because smoking is bad for you.  Smoking Kills.

Tax alcohol of all sorts because drinking is bad for you.  Oh, wait – that’s not quite right.  In some circles some drinking is good for you.  So let’s amend that one.

Tax alcohol of all sorts because binge drinking is bad for you.  It can kill you, and if it doesn’t it can create so many health problems that you’re self-inflicted woes cost the NHS a bundle.  It can also ruin friendships and tear your family apart.

Tax chocolate because chocolate makes you fat.  Fat is bad.  Apparently, today, there is no such thing as fat and healthy.  Tomorrow, who knows.

Doesn’t chocolate already have a tax, in the form of VAT added to it?  No matter, MORE TAX!  You can never have enough tax if it stops people from being able to afford and eat chocolate, thus becoming fat.  For their own good.

Chocolate is the devil this week and it makes you fat.  Never mind the 1001 other things that we shove into our mouths in all sorts of forms.  Never mind a total lack of any decent exercise.  This week, they are not counting picking up the remote or shuffling off to the toilet as exercise – sorry, check back next week though.


Chocolate is bad.  Chocolate makes you fat.  And if you insist on eating/drinking/sniffing/touching it, they wanna tax you.  Understood?!

Good.  Now that I’ve done my public service for the day I’ve got to think about supper.  Deep fried (free range of course!) chicken maybe, or a gigantic kebab.  Oh ooh, better yet – a triple meat, quadruple cheese pizza with a bit of cheesy garlic bread and a pint or two of cola.  I can faithfully promise that there will not be so much as one speck of chocolate involved!

Followed by an evening on the sofa munchin’ crisps and it’s a wonderful life.

Now just where did I put that box of takeaway menus?
