It was a ludicrous suggestion, and was quite rightly turned down by Scottish Doctors ... but by only TWO votes?
Scottish GPs have voted against a proposal for chocolate to be taxed in the same way as alcohol and cigarettes to tackle increasing levels of obesity.
Dr David Walker, a GP in Lanarkshire, warned that chocolate had lost its status as a "treat" and had become a harmful addition for some people.
However, his motion calling for a tax on chocolate was defeated by two votes at a BMA conference in Clydebank.
So the Daily Mash was 100% accurate about the medical profession.

Incredibly, although this particular initiative has been thrown out, disappointingly narrowly, the focus had already shifted. Chocolate is obviously too emotive and is causing a problem.
So let's go after sugar instead ... that way, we can tax absolutely bloody everything!
Professor Roger Corder of The London School of Medicine said Walker was concentrating on the wrong problem. "Targetting chocolate is misguided. If we targeted sugar, you'd capture all unhealthy foods," he told the BBC.
I've encountered a hell of a lot of illiberal shitsticks in my time but reading that tonight (on a French site, notice?) knocked me sideways. What's the collective noun for medical cunts? A cess-pit? A skip? A festering-culture-on-a-petrie-dish?
Just shut the fuck up and cure us when we are ill, please? That's your job. If you want to make laws, get your name on the fucking ballot paper. And don't use the money we pay you out of our taxes to fund your deposit, either.
