David Cameron and the fat tax

Coming ready or not, the fat tax:

I think it is something that we should look at,” he said in an interview with Five Live. “The problem in the past when people have looked at using the tax system in this way is the impact it can have on people on low incomes. But frankly, do we have a problem with the growing level of obesity? Yes.
“I am worried about the costs to the health service, the fact that some people are going to have shorter lives than their parents.”

Mr Cameron said obesity was now on the verge of overtaking smoking and drinking as the “biggest health challenge”. “Don’t rule anything out, but let’s look at the evidence and let’s look at the impact on families,” he said.

It is coming because it needs to.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
