Nanny To Tax Coke?
I was gemused to read this morning that there are calls from various medical bodies, Sustain (a food and farming charity), Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, Friends of the Earth, the National Heart Forum and the Royal Society for Public Health et al for Nanny to start taxing Coke.
The snorty kind, or the fizzy kind?
Thinking for one nanosecond that Nanny had experienced a Damascus moment wrt legalising drugs, I was needless to say unsurprised to read that this tax refers to adding 20p or so to a litre of fizzy drinks that contain sugar.
Seemingly it would help avert the health disaster of the "mini time bombs" that are this country's children (their words not mine).
Here's a simple and more effective solution for those parents who are worried about their children's consumption of sugar etc.
Don't buy them sugary, unhealthy shite to eat and drink!
It really is that simple!
My parents only ever bought Coke and crisps for me as a very rare treat, and limited my pocket money so I didn't go and waste it.
Problem solved, without the need for state intervention!
