They'll be taxing our fresh air next
I SUPPOSE that Kevin Roche, and others who follow his teetotal lifestyle, will be so happy to hear the price of alcohol will be increased once again.
It is totally unfair of the Government to hit the whole of society, for the minority who have no control over their drinking habit.
It makes me wonder why the Government delayed hitting the supermarkets and 'happy hour' sessions when they were first elected, as they said they would do? Now they are going to hit all drinkers, irrespective of their habits or ability to drink sensibly. What a brilliant move on their part, and how wonderful that the serfs of this country now have to suffer more increases to their cost of living.
Well done to all of you who voted in these Tory toffs, who seem to be living in cloud cuckoo land, and not in the real world. Do these Tory toffs not realise what they are doing to the drinks industry, with the resultant job losses and closure of pubs, where a vibrant social life is important to a lot of people? Do they not also realise that people will give up buying other items to fund their drinking habits? This will have a knock-on effect, on maybe the retail industry, or maybe such activities as going to the theatre.

If they want people to stop smoking and drinking, then where will they get the extra tax from instead? Probably, we will be taxed for just being alive and breathing in fresh air, or there will be a pavement tax for pedestrians and joggers!
All these bright ideas just appear to be a smoke screen for the really serious issues that we all have to worry about, such as terrorists, murderers and rapists on our streets. This country is now becoming a joke, with our security and personal freedom being threatened in this way. Is it any wonder there is such a big drink problem?
Anyway, I have now had enough of all these stresses and aggravations, so I'm off to the drinks cabinet! Cheers, Kevin Roche! Hic!
