Whining About Wine!
« on: December 07, 2012, 07:04:58 AM »

As you can see, UK duty is nearly £2 a bottle (£1.90 now, rising to £2 in the next Budget) and there’s 20% VAT on the duty and the wine. UK wine retailers – whether supermarkets, merchants, websites or shops – have to add the dreaded £1.90 duty to the cost of the bottle before adding their margin and VAT. By contrast, there is no duty in Germany, Spain, Italy, Austria, Portugal and many other EU countries. In France, it’s 3p.

Fecking outrageous!  cussing:

I wonder how much Lidl Red I can get in my suitcase at €2.99 a bottle....  rubschin:

Of course, the bottom line is that if they didn't steal it from you when you bought a bottle of wine they'd have to take it from elsewhere...

...which begs the question, 'where does all the money go...?'

I've been away from the UK for ten years now... and the country is completely, financially fucked - in debt to the tune of trillions....

When I return in a week, will I see any evidence that any of the money has been wisely spent....?

Is Cyprus in any better position or many European countries for that matter ?
