Drinks ban 25/2/2013
It’s a brave nanny stater who gets between a New Yorker and his big bottle of soda pop. The wowserly leader of arguably the western world’s most tolerant city cops a well-deserved bagging from the local paper.
Say goodbye to that 2-litre bottle of Coke with your pizza delivery, pitchers of soft drinks at your kid’s birthday party and some bottle-service mixers at your favorite nightclub.
They’d violate Mayor Bloomberg’s new rules, which prohibit eateries from serving or selling sugary drinks in containers larger than 16 ounces.
The mayor would achieve far more by telling his fat constituents to get off their lard arses and take some exercise and get on a diet.
Can’t have that. Someone’s self-esteem might take a battering.
