Takeaway food rubbish tax

Takeaway food produces a significant amount of rubbish, a great deal of which does not end up in bins, is thrown out of cars and so on.

To discourage this repellent issue, all food not eaten on the premises purchased from should carry a tax equivalent to the VAT, adding 20% (at the current rate) to the price of such items.
