It was reported this morning that the SNP is considering a report showing support for the taxation of sugary and fizzy drinks.
This, the report from the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy stated, may improve the health of people across Scotland partial to fizzy, sugary soft drinks.
Responding, Scottish Conservative Health Spokesman and Deputy Leader Jackson Carlaw MSP said:
“If anyone was in doubt about the SNP’s compulsive need to look to regulation and taxation as the solution to everything, they only need to look at this proposed Irn Bru tax.
“This will convince them that living in an independent Scotland run by the SNP would be thoroughly miserable, especially for those who enjoy our other national drink.”
