Shoppers in Scotland buy cheap snacks containing almost 110 tonnes of sugar every day, according to research.
Experts at the charity Cancer Research UK calculated that the equivalent of 4.3 million chocolate bars or 3.1 million cans of cola was being purchased each day at discounted prices in Scotland.
The figures heap further pressure on the Scottish government to bring in regulations restricting discounts such as buy-one-get-one-free on sweet snacks when it announces its obesity strategy this autumn.
Nothing will ever satisfy these fanatics. We should therefore cut to the quick and tell them to fuck off now.
