The Danish Superior Beings are considering dropping the Fat Tax they imposed on all those foods they don’t think their people are intelligent enough to eat without gorging themselves.
Why? Have they at last realised that they are being arrogant little shits in telling other people how to live their lives? Not a bit of it. It’s the money.
These unions, and other groups in Denmark, claim the sat fat tax is driving Danish consumers over the border to buy fatty products more cheaply in Germany, Holland or Sweden. This is threatening retail and manufacturing jobs, they say.
“The Danish Agriculture and Food Council says it expects the fat tax to cost Denmark 1,300 jobs in the next three years,” said an NNF spokesman.
Well, duh. If people are already having to cross the border to avoid being ripped off on booze and tobacco, why wouldn’t they do all their food shopping while there and avoid being ripped off on that too? It’s not as if it means making a special trip, not if they’re going there anyway.
As for costing jobs, well double duh. Didn’t these unions notice what happens with every new smoking control measure? Pubs, clubs, restaurants. All those employed in the cigarette vending machine industry and soon, all those employed in the packet-printing industry. Every one of these meddling little schemes costs jobs. Every one of them. Nobody seems to have minded so far, in fact I doubt anyone in Wastemonster has even noticed.
So the Danish Righteous now plan to drop the fat tax that was about helping people live healthier lives, and not at all about stealing more money for their government to piss away on vanity projects and idiotic schemes.
However, the Danish government is expected to agree to the move and is understood to be formulating plans to recoup the money by increasing income tax.
It was never about health. None of it. In any country, anywhere, ever. It is, was and always will be about stealing money from the proles to fund the lavish lifestyles of the arrogant mindless cretins in power.
In case anyone is still in doubt, this is what will happen if they don’t go ahead with minimum pricing and what will happen on a huge scale if they ban tobacco. IT IS ALL ABOUT MONEY. Specifically, yours. They work out how much of your money they’ll get if they impose this tax, then when they don’t impose the tax, they have to ‘recoup the money they’ve lost’ through income tax, while hoping you won’t notice they didn’t have the money in the first place.
The proles still think their governments actually care about them. Ha ha ha ha ha. You exist to work hard and give your money to idle wasters who will beat you up if you don’t hand it over. You are the little kid in the playground giving your dinner money to the bully and that is all you will ever be, prole.
Winston Smith was wrong. There is no hope in the proles, and no hope for them. Let them go. Let them stew in the Hell they voted for.
Save yourself. Nobody else will.
There’s really only one way to deal with the modern world. Sit back, light up, pour yourself a drink and watch it burn.
