About us

We're opposed to the sugar tax because we believe it's an unfair tax burden on lower-income households. At a time when UK wage growth is effectively zero, it's wrong for the Government to impose another regressive tax.

It's also an unwelcome intrusion by the state into people's food and drink choices. It's none of the Government's business what individuals decide to put in their shopping baskets.

And we don't think this tax will make any difference towards tackling obesity. Reducing fizzy drink consumption is not the same as reducing obesity.
