Totally agree, we need to change our system, if people have been warned, time and time again and still refuses to eat healthily, and then they have a condition as a result of their bad habits, they should be charged for the care, and bit the taxpayers. Reduce strain, create competitive markets which drive down prices and encourages the NHS to outperform private enterprises. Barstow doesn’t know where you are shopping, but if you buy a cheap pack of mince, in Tom’s and a tin of kidney beans, with staples in the I’m not the sweet girl next door i’m the crazy heifer lady down the street shirt cupboard cheap spaghetti and long grain rice, you can make spag vol one day, add beans for chilli next day. Will serve 4 people both days. Those ready meals aren’t even a proper meal, I eat them as a late night snack, they are too small for a meal. I don’t know where you got that idea from but healthy food is definitely not cheap.
