ITV News readers have spoken overwhelmingly against the suggestion of a 'sugar tax', made by England's chief medical officer in response to the country's obesity crisis.
At the time of writing, not a single response on Twitter or the ITV News Facebook page has supported the idea floated by Dame Sally Davies.

The government should focus on making healthy food cheap and stop food prices rocketing.
I actually think medical "experts" are a bigger threat to personal freedoms than the police, secret services, GCHQ, etc.
