£10 licence to smoke' proposed

As Darth Wit (Carl) pointed out in the shoutbox,

"Smokers could be forced to pay £10 for a permit to buy tobacco if a government health advisory body gets its way."  £10 licence to smoke' proposed

Personally I think this is taking the P.   Yep I'm a smoker, and it seems with all the people giving up smoking, and sales of tobacco dropping with the recent smoking bans, this is just another way of making up for the drop in taxes.

Not surprised everyone is sodding off abroad.  ;)

Don't forget the the charge is to go to the NHS.

Yeah, to pay for obesity treatment for fast food addicts, A&E treatment for drunks and pre/post natal treatment for 14 year old girls....
