The age of the nanny state..

Advantages: It could deter some people from over indulging
Disadvantages: It will cost me more money!

The Sin taxes We are in the age of the nanny state where there is not a single bit of fun someone in power does not want to discourage with a tax or ‘minimum price.’ During the past month we have heard about the pasty tax, an increase in ...

Review of Do you think that a minimum pricing of alcohol should be brought in?

A 'Booze Cruise' to Carlisle?

Advantages: Cutting booze is healthy
Disadvantages: Less tax?

There’s always a contradiction when governments make policy on our vices. On the one hand they want us to stop doing them because they are health and socially damaging and so expensive in the long term but on the other had they miss the vast taxation they ...
