Members of a famous political party of U.K. has requested to the management of City of Liverpool to ban the famous red Coca Cola truck to visit the city this Christmas.
Some key representatives of Liverpool city’s Liberal Democratic party has submitted a letter to shopping mall owners who host this Coca Cola truck activity during chirstmas festivities, not to hold this activity as ‘Obesity epidemic’ is spreading like wild fire.
Liberal councilor Richard Kemp said, “almost one in three 11-year olds in the city were currently obese and the visit of Coca-Cola was a cynical event.”
“It is not designed to welcome Christmas but to increase the consumption of a product that is grossly unhealthy,” said Kemp, according to the report Monday.
Kemp claimed that 10 percent of all hospital beds In Liverpool are currently occupied by people with type II diabetes.
Responding to the criticism, a spokesperson for Coca-Cola Great Britain said in a statement that the Liverpool truck visit, now in its seventh year, always elicited a “positive response.”
