If the government allows duty free purchases on line other taxes will go up to compensate. Is this fair?

Bloke this morning in the supermarket made a comment to his wife about non smokers...he said"once duty free cigarettes are available on line taxes will go up....it will serve the non smokers right!"

Dick.
Update: thanks FRAGINAL-PINOY AKO but i think we all know what taxes are.
Update 2: I think it will be more than a penny on income tax!
Update 3: Why the hell should non smokers have to cough up. smokers arent forced to smoke, they choose to. christ sake grow up - youre mental.
Update 4: More smokers will die, more strain on NHS
