Osborne's Fetish For The White Stuff
I am ungemused to see that St Jamie of Oliver has managed to persuade Osborne to tax the white stuff.
In a faux attempt to reduce obesity, sugar laden drinks will be taxed. Theoretically the money raised will go fund school sports. That of course is BS, as taxes raised simply go into one great big pot and spent as Nanny sees fit.
As to the increase in pricing of fizzy sugary drinks, it will not make one iota of difference to consumption.
Unlike third world countries, where people on the breadline have reduced the consumption as a result of the tax, the UK is not yet a third world country. As such people will not be forced to reduce their consumption of sugary drinks by the addition of a few pennies to the sales price.
In short, it's gesture politics designed to play the gallery of simpletons.
