... They picked three things that they want to put a tax on. Theirs included people who take their bikes on the trains should have to pay an extra tax, whilst people who are forces to use self check out tills in shops should get the tax taken off their bill.
What would yours be?

Probably a bit Eco warrior but I'd want a tax on fruit, veg and meats that have to be flown into the UK and invest the tax money into UK farmers.

I would remove tax from things like nappies and ladies' sanitary products and health foods and whack it on junk food and ready meals.

A tax on cyclists that cycle on the road when there's a perfectly decent cycle path right next to the road. It's been specially created for their safety FFS.

I'd put more tax on fags and much as it pains me, booze and fast food. The money brought in should go to the nhs. I'd then heavily tax computer games and consoles and give the money to schools.

Cigarettes, £20 a pack. Ridiculous unnecessary packaging (thinking of toys like happy land and the toy kettle from M&s that had to be unscrewed from the box, for example). Junk food/ready meals/food that pretends to be healthy but isn't - mini morning maximisers anyone?

Mini morning what now?
I also think celebs shouldn't be able to just go bankrupt to get out of paying their debts.
