Sorry Nanny, e-cigs have 'no serious side-effects' – researchers


Going off on a tangent

The concept that something should be taxed because it is a health risk and costs the NHS money is now becoming established, sugar etc.

So when will they realise that having children adds to NHS, education and climate change costs and start taxing parents more instead of making the rest of us pay for them?

In case you read the above at face value what I really mean is, why does the government get to pick and chose which lifestyle choices get rewarded or punished? If we want a country that welcomes different cultures and lifestyles how does singling out a group for special attention sit with that?
