But hang on Tamati, didn’t you advocate for a sugar tax?

Tamati Coffey, Labour candidate for Rotorua, has written a lot on a sugar tax and uses the hashtag #‎forahealthiernz‬ as he goes on his anti-sugar crusade. He even endorses the “Water Challenge” where you drink only water for the month of April.


However, like all control-freak socialists, he is also a massive hypocrite.

This does not stop him from selling 100% sugar candy floss at Waiariki’s O-Week and owning an inner-city bar, which the dangers of alcohol aside, services sugar-filled cocktails and other brews.


I don’t think he realises how hard this makes it for people to take him seriously?

Does anyone take him seriously? I know Todd McClay doesn’t.

At least Coffey leaves a massive trail of his hypocrisy and embarrassing moments all over Twitter and Facebook.
