Nanny Hates Fags - But Loves Money

As loyal readers know, Nanny absolutely hates fags and does her level best to stop us smoking.

However, not all in Nanny's garden is as rosy or as clear cut as that. Ladies and Gentlemen I present HM Treasury's open consultation on Minimum Excise Tax.

In brief Nanny is worried that we are smoking less, and that when we do smoke we are smoking cheaper stuff (eg roll ups).

For why is she worried?

The less we smoke, and the cheaper we smoke, the less tax revenue she raises!

AHA!

The solution?

A minimum excise tax that would increase Nanny's profits from our smoking. The document then goes on to explain how that would work, and how much extra revenue it would generate.

Hypocrisy?

Nanny?

Never!

One amusing point though, despite the document covering all manner of fag type matters (eg roll ups and counterfeits etc), it fails to mention the effect on the market of e fags. Rather a serious omission I would say!

Anyhoo, those of you who want to help Nanny out of a financial hole should do the decent thing and start smoking 20 cigars a day; for Queen and country!

  1. I don't smoke. I went into a shop to send a parcel and behind the guy serving was a display of fags. Some packs are nearly ten quid for 20 fags. I was flabbergasted at the price. Outrageously expensive.
