Remove all tax from tobacco other than VAT ?

Recommended Posts

[tongue in cheek?]

Just a thought, but if all tobacco taxes were removed (other than VAT) then the sales of tobacco might rocket and the tax take via VAT might significantly exceed the present take.

The government might have extra funds which they could throw at the NHS, which would doubly benefit because smokers tend to die younger and thus not need so much treatment.

Win win?

Deport smokers and give their houses to non-smokers.

I read somewhere that smokers devalue a house by up to 10% . it can cost £20k for an avg 3 bed to replace plasterboard / carpets etc after smokers have impregnated it.
