Conservative party declares war on ingredients

Unexpected and almost unbelievable. Proof, once again, that no matter who you vote for, the nanny state always wins.

I've written a quick piece for City AM about it...

George Osborne’s Budgets have a reputation for pulling populist rabbits out of hats.

Last time it was the so-called living wage. This time it was something the government has repeatedly said it was loathe to endorse - a sugar tax.

In his response to the chancellor, an angry Jeremy Corbyn berated the Budget on almost every count. But not the sugar tax. He liked that. Islington liberals do.

Do read the rest.
