The Crocodile Always Gets Around To You In The End…

MPs applauded the announcement of a tax on sugary drinks, but called on the government to monitor whether drinks companies pass on the tax in the form of higher prices and whether they also raise the prices of their unsweetened drinks, such as water, as well.

They also call for sweetened milk drinks to be included – at the moment they are exempt.

And this is why attempts by companies to give in to these demands by MPs and fakecharity pressure groups should cease forthwith, and they should be simply told ‘Take the sex and travel option, chum’….

    Did you ever think that the UK public are being conned – CONed?

    some idiots might have thought they voted in a referendum to get out of the EU but what we got instead was more EU/Socialism – the mother theresa way and if you doubt it, look no further than mother theresa stealing RED ED miliwank’s policy on energy tariff pricing – and if that ain’t a disaster waiting to happen – then, I’m the Berlin…………er sorry Brussels sugar overdose fairy.

      Fiddling about with energy taxes will just mean more costs passed on to the lowest, meaning less money spent in shops, less demand, less employment…
      It’s a brokn record, but it’s not remotely complicated.

    Are MPs stupid? Let’s assume the companies don’t pass this cost on. That means they’ll sack people to make up the cost, or, more likely, reduce the bottle size for the cost, equating to the same. That means unemployment, meaning more welfare, meaning more taxes from fewer.

    For crying out loud – high taxes are a stupid idea. Always have been. Want to raise money? Get people spending. How? By cutting taxes. It is not complicated – unless, it seems, you’re a gormless snowflake appeasing idiot.

      No,. not stupid. It’s just that the consequences fall on the little people. And they only need care about them every 5 years.

    Given that MPs are the lowest form of human life in the land …

    Have I got this right? They have imposed a tax on sugary drinks in order to make them more expensive in the hope that people will drink fewer sugary drinks. At the same time they are concerned that the manufacturers are going to pass on the cost of the tax by raising the price of the drinks. I would be more concerned with manufacturers selling the concentrate in a handy dispenser so that people can add it to carbonated water.
