The charming Socialists in Sugar-tax drag need to mosey into the 2teens.
It is 2012 and taxing an unavoidable substance is counterproductive and not something that will work in the fight against obesity.

What will work is education around how many calories individuals should consume in a day and calorie counters on food wrappers, as the main fast food chains are doing.
Sugar addiction is a personal battle and gastric banding should be available for the losers of this fight. For the rest of us, education plus exercise is the prescription.

    “What will work is education around how many calories individuals should consume in a day and calorie counters on food wrappers, as the main fast food chains are doing.”
    Really? Those who suffer most from obesity will read the calorie counters on food wrappers, respond by adjusting their intake and overcome their obesity problem as a result of their intellectual grasp of the issue? Excellent and easier than expected! It’s all about education, eh! Choice!
