Apparently the alco pops tax got fucked in the Senate. Thanks Liberal party for giving distillers back potentially one plus billion over four years. Well fucking done. Also well done for making lolly water cheaper again for sweet toothed teens to gobble by the truck load then end up convinced their drink was spiked as opposed to a incompus mentus state they achieved from guzzling 12 cruisers in a half hour.
See the story here.
Oh - and a special shout out to Fielding, elected by 1.7% of Victorians, who voted no because he didn't get his own way on sports advertising and wanted to send a message.
Nice one billion dollar message Fielding. Well done. You sure showed them...
