Have just been reading an article on a site called Notrickszone - A german based reporter by the name Pierre Gosselin who reports a lot of sceptic views on climate change.

On a different tack he has posted an article on a new Danish tax on FAT.

One of the commenters post is pasted here Note the comment at the end

Well the butchers, dairy food outlets and confectioners in Schleswig-Holstein are going to profit from this, aren’t they?

Governments everywhere are always ready to respond to exclaimations of “somebody’s got to do something about it!” By imposing a new tax and other regulatory mechanisms that do nothing about the *perceived* problem.

I don’t believe that Danes are so dumbed-down to actually believe that such a tax will do anything about perceived “obesity”. Certainly a tax won’t have any effect, nor will restrictions on availability of nourishing foods.

After all, Sweden’s astronomical taxes and duties on alcohol, and availability restricted to government-run “dispensaries” hasn’t improved the level of alcoholism in that country.

One of the down-sides of a democracy is that the stupid and the feckless are allowed to vote; and (sigh) to be elected. Doesn’t just hold for Denmark. Look at Australia’s Prime Minister.

LOL

Cheers
