By that logic almost any tax doesn't make people 'worse off'. Raising income tax on the first £10k earned doesn't make you worse off because you can always choose to be unemployed!

I don't want to labour the point but obviously it does make them worse off financially, since they have to pay more for the thing they'd have gone for without this policy.

I was thinking about this earlier. The stuff I really care about - liberalism on the green belt, immigration, drugs and paternalistic taxes/regs - could conceivably be offered by any of the major parties and not seem too weird, but also ALL feel a million miles away.

Re-reading the sign, it looks as if the reformulation point isn't even applicable here. If you want the original full sugar drink you've got to pay extra.

It's pretty crazy that you still can't buy liquid egg yolk in a bottle to pour on eg a bacon sandwich like ketchup.

Can't believe remoaners only like referendums when they give outcomes that increase individual liberty and not when they give outcomes that don't. Hypocrites.

Lots of people saying that the movement that campaigned to shows a different form of politics took over. Maybe, but remember that the referendum happened because got elected, was willing to enter government, and insisted the issue go to a CA as the price

Glad to see David Gauke admit that drug prohibition is one of the root cause of gang violence in Britain.

1. Amazingly, this is the first contemporary effort to estimate the biomass distribution of all life on Earth. There are some striking patterns among the ~550 gigatons of carbon packed into life on our planet. (tl;dr the Triffids won)
