Överraskning i brittisk budget: skatt på söt dryck

16 mars, 2016

Det händer stora grejer i Storbritannien. BBC skriver att den nya budgeten inbegriper skatt på söt dryck: Sugar tax surprise in Budget – but growth forecasts cut – BBC News

När finansministern annonserade nyheten sa han: I am not prepared to look back at my time here in this Parliament, doing this job and say to my children’s generation: ’I’m sorry – we knew there was a problem with sugary drinks. We knew it caused disease. But we ducked the difficult decisions and we did nothing’.

Önskar att det fanns svenska politiker som talade så.
