The UK has a sugar tax coming into effect in 2018 and is expected to generate around £520 million a year but this will be spent on sports in english schools ONLY. Why should all of the uk be taxed when its not spent on sports throughout the uk. my wife is a diabetic and this will have a massive effect on her but she or many other diabetics will see nothing in return for this. If im wrong on this please inform me but from what i can find scotland and wales wont see anything from this and ireland will be forming their own sugar tax seperate from the rest of the uk. if the generated income is being spent in ONLY english schools why should we all be taxed? are welsh and scottish children not as important as english children?
