You might notice that your humble Devil's blog is carrying some Messagespace adverts for Axe The Beer Tax, another alcohol pressure group.
I knew that the tax on alcohol was pretty high. I did not, however, know that the tax on a pint of beer was 33%! THIRTY THREE PERCENT! Fucking hellski...
So, here in the Big Smoke, I probably pay an average of three quid a pint, and so one pound of that is going to the fucking Treasury (and it's worth about 30p when it comes out, but that's another story).
It really is enough to put one off buying any beer—almost. Instead, why not sign up to Axe The Beer Tax and shout about the fucking cheek of it all?
Oh, and as a quick reminder, whilst we are paying 33% tax to the fucking government, those bastards are using £5.5 million of our money to ensure that their drink is nice and cheap.
The hypocritical, fucking cunts.
