Rational taxation #2

As the drinking season draws to a close, I was taken by this report from the UK proposing that the costs of being admitted to hospital to sleep off alcoholic excess should be met by individuals, not the National Health Service.

It makes heaps of sense to me – just like the full cost of their profits should be met by the big polluters and the purveyors if ill health and the consumers of their products
