Geoff Martin of London Health Emergency said: \’It\’s a scandal that any company could use the swine flu pandemic as an opportunity to jack up profits.
\’The Government should step in and impose a windfall tax on private companies that have hit the jackpot as a result of the flu crisis.\’
What would be the result of such a tax? Yes, you\’ve got it, no company would ever again invest in the research of, potential production of nor maintain the production facilities for, vaccines.
We would thus all die of the next bug spread by un-sanistised telephone handsets.
There really are some morons out there.
