    The Falklands have become awash and rapidly submerging under a deluge of “Strategies” and “Policies” - and more and more department heads - but bugger all “Action”.

    Much more effective to put say a 50%(or more) Import Duty on such foods - with all that income clearly identified in the Treasury and accruing each year to a reserve Health Service Fund to pay for the oversize beds and hospital facilities and Type 2 diabetes controls etc.

    Just make it “User Pays”.

    How come these supposed capitalists always oppose legalising drugs? Whatever happened to personal responsibility?

    I agree, but it would probably be unpopular. Isn't imported food already very expensive there?
