Prime Minister George Grenville: I have an idea, lets raise revenue to help defray the military costs of protecting the American colonies!
HEY! STOP SMUGGLING SUGAR.
Since the sugar was being taxed colonists began sneaking in sugar from the French and Dutch West Indies.
Prime Minister George Grenville hoped that lowering the tax on sugar would prevent colonists from sneaking in sugar.
Prime Minister George Grenville: Well this isn't working. What if I lower the tax, then maybe the colonists would stop sneaking in sugar.
STOP TAXING OUR SUGAR!!!
