Booze Matters

Given that we are paying way above the European norm for our booze but, allegedly, drinking like fish (can a fish drink?) why does Nanny insist that raising prices is the cure all for our modest intake of booze?

  1. I'm starting to get annoyed wrt Nanny and her taxes. Me & the missus have a drink of a Friday. It has occurred to me (not her) just to stop.

    She is so convincing though. "You'll only encounter speed cameras". She's right. Nanny will get the balance wrong soon & there will be a missive swing.

    OK…..Booze in Britain is expensive and I think everyone is aware that the government takes the lion’s share in duties and taxes.

    But is it 65% more expensive than the European average?

    Perhaps if you include all the shit hole nations that have now joined the European Union, but with places that you might want to visit……..yes, Britain is a little more expensive than most of France and almost all of Spain and Italy. But a lot cheaper than Sweden, Denmark and Finland.

    I think this research has included the piss water that passes for alcohol in countries such as Latvia, Romania and Estonia, which can be brought for a few cents a bottle.

    I have mooted several times on my own MP's website that one way to easily decrease the amount of tax/duty we pay would be to itemize tax and duty on the till receipt so people could see it. I am told we cannot do this because it is illegal.
    Imagine if, the next time you went to fill up your car, the "cost of the fuel" came to say £100 and your receipt showed that £80 of that was tax, it would focus people's minds and there would be an outcry.
    Politicians claim to be in favour of transparency, so let the retailers show these figures on the receipt.
    I cannot think of any other place where we pay tax on a We pay VAT on fuel duty!

    If the state did much less, taxes could be much lower.
