McGinger Comic: Implications Of A Sugar Tax

February 1, 2018

[Written by McGinger Design Lab]

In the first of a new comic series about the adventures of McGinger in Bermuda, McGinger ‘debates’ a Government sugar tax and its implications for consumers.


A McGinger Design Lab spokesperson said, “McGinger Design Lab created the McGinger comic as a fun advertising mechanism to show off all of our talents. McGinger likes to discover local traditions and habits as well as talking about the latest news. His best friend Lobsterman often plays a role of a local guide.

“The Doggie gives the reader a critical conclusion – encouraging everyone to look at the topic from a different prospective. We always try to pick the location that people can identify with and make the situation their own. Our goal with McGinger is to deliver exceptional graphic work and to talk about Bermuda in a new creative way.

“McGinger Design Lab specializes in graphics, web design and building brand identity. For more information contact us on 441-599-2807 or visit our website.”

    They have been told seversl times to stay out of the bedroom .
    Now, do we have to tell them to stay out of the kitchen.
    Adults are capable of making their own choices.
    All they are looking for is to collect more taxes and lead you all down the road to poverty.
    Their jobs are transportation trash and the economy.

    ……… Do your jobs !

      Ok, then adults should be capable of paying for their own diabetes treatments and obesity-related health problems. Why am I the one paying THEIR BILLS?? With a tax on this garbage, I can choose not to pay your healthcare bill by not buying this garbage. You wanna eat garbage food? Go for it! By paying a tax on it, you are pre-paying for your own dang healthcare! Sounds good to me.

    the only way to do a fair sugar tax is to tax every item that has sugar
    they need to increase the tax on rum and cigs but they won’t do that
    and increase the tax on the money that leaves the island
    raise the work permit fee

    • Politricks says:

      The sin taxes (tobacco and alcohol) are generally the fist tax increases that a Government enacts. Hence why a pack of cigs now cost $15 (not that I see that as a bad thing mind you). Check the recent budgets to confirm.

    • The Original Truth™ says:

      Fully agree with your idea of a remittances tax. Bermuda has lost billions in remittances. PLP says they are for Bermudians but haven’t done anything about the remittances issue. PLP has helped foreigners build mansions back home while Bermudians have a hard time affording an apartment. What makes matters even worse is that work permits for IB have drastically gone down while those for non IB have increased. IB guest workers statistically spend more of their earnings on island than non IB.
