 n.— «We use the term Coca-Colanisation, and Tony Abbot probably ran off that. Credit has to be given to the government for addressing childhood obesity. They’ve spent $100 million on after school exercise programs. Diabetes and obesity have been made top priorities in the latest COAG meetings. While they’ve also been trying to avoid putting restrictions on advertising these product to kids, this does represent a significant softening of the government’s position.» —“Coca-Colanisation not on, according to Abbott” by Thomas Hunter Crikey (Collingwood, Victoria, Australia) Nov. 14, 2006.
