Ten percent of Danes are obese, so their government has decided to impose a "fat" tax.

Starting from this Saturday, Danes will pay an extra 30p on each pack of butter, 8p on a pack of crisps, and an extra 13p on a pound of mince, as a result of the tax.

The tax is expected to raise about 2.2bn Danish Krone (£140m), and cut consumption of saturated fat by close to 10pc, and butter consumption by 15pc.

Tax consumer products here haven’t worked, don’t know why they think it will tear.
