I live in NI. I will be subject to the new sugar tax.

AIBU to think if you live under a devolved goverment you won't see a penny of it back?

the sugar tax money from england will be spent on english schools its up to scotland and wales what they do with theirs.....there really was no mention of ireland was there?

Every Scottish person I know spends on average £47.82 per week on Irn Bru.

We should get all the money.

Be grateful you have a devolved government - that's more than we have in England wink!

Be grateful you didn't vote Tory, that's more than they can say in England wink

Seriously Alice have you seen the Muppet show we have over here? It makes DC & co. look almost reasonable.

What a pointless tax... Of course everyone who is over weight drinks Coke...

I am liking the idea that NI could be exempt from sugar tax and for a small sum I could smuggle Iron bru over to Scotland.
