I said over ten years ago that if Crawford Rae ever got his hands on the club we were doomed. I worked 'under' him at GC and he was a complete tool I.M.O.

Bus companies are on the way out.

Sugar/confectionery is going the way of tobacco.

The best days of GC are long gone.

Officially called the Soft Drinks Industry Levy (SDIL), the tax puts a charge of 24p on drinks containing 8g of sugar per 100ml and 18p a litre on those with 5-8g of sugar per 100ml, directly payable by manufacturers to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

The time bomb is ticking.

Fat kids are on the up too. Won't be long before they try to call child obesity a disease.

A snack tax of 20% on biscuits, cakes and sweets would have “a huge impact” on obesity levels in the UK and be more effective than the current levy on colas and other sugary drinks, say experts.

But the idea may struggle to get past the current government. Boris Johnson took a stand against “sin stealth taxes” in July, ordering a review and opposing plans to extend the sugary drinks tax to milkshakes, which he said “seems to me to clobber those who can least afford it”.

Researchers writing in the British Medical Journal say the UK’s love of sweet snacks means it should consider taxing food as well as drinks, which would lead to a drop in sales especially among families where obesity is a problem and incomes are low.

My own thoughts are that taxing food is the wrong way to do it.

The cost to exercise in the UK is extortionate and that makes it near impossible for low paid/unemployed people to take part. Lower the costs of that and real progress will be made.
