Don’t touch my Alcopops

Dr. Nelson’s decision to oppose my brave initiative to reduce binge drinking has me flabbergasted.

He’s a Doctor, surely he knows that increasing tax on Alcopops will immediately stop kids getting horribly drunk and solve the binge drinking problem in Australia. In a sea of tokenism it’s been my greatest policy announcement.

Didn’t Doctor Nelson see the impact tax hikes had on reducing smoking and lung cancer when they were first introduced!
I’m planning to prevent childhood obesity next week by taxing Wonka Bars and Adult Obesity the week after by taxing Krispy Kream donuts.

C’mon Doctor, get your head around the health benefits of my tax policies.
