Reader’s Comment of the Day: Sugar tax is just another PC scam to feed to bloated State


In response to, Kathy Gyngell: Old-style home cooking is the answer to the obesity crisis not a sugar tax, Politically__Incorrect wrote:

My wife spent a day working in a local nursery with young toddlers. She was horrified that the only thing they fed them all day was toast. No fruit, meat, or vegetables in any form. Poor kids, dumped in the care of strangers all day and getting no proper food – child abuse takes on many forms.

The sugar tax, like green taxes, is just another excuse to raise a bit more revenue while appearing to care about topical issues. It won’t solve anything, just as green taxes don’t solve anything. As you say Kathy, sugar has become a substitute for motherly love, and is slowly killing the nation’s children.
