Gittins supports food policies.

Co-worker Samantha pointed out to me this article by Ross Gittens supporting a case for activist food/obesity policies based on market failure ideas.

Apropos government intervention. I noticed, with interest, that a servo in Sydney's working class Canterbury was selling cigarette packet wrappers. For just $1.50 you can aesthetically envelop your gaspers in a neat plastic wrap-holder so you don't have to look at colour pictures of gangrene and throat cancers. Where there's a lame government initiative there's a neat, entrepreneurial way out.

So the message has an impact. Others have told me that blacken the images with texta.

No, the impact is nullified by covering up the visual messages so they then have no impact.
