And fuel is going up again in September despite the fact it has only just gone up at the beginning of the month. Bastards.

but alcohol and petrol are great things. absolutely no death or destruction can be attributed to them. to tax smoking and the uber-rich is just cloud-cookoo-land-mentalism!!!

Vince Cable this morning was pointing out that people on 150k+ in the city will just switch to getting paid in shares, if they aren't already as capital gains is 18% vs 40/45/50%

Tax the poor higher to raise revenue, they can't afford to hire expensive tax dodging accountants!

Today is German Beer Purity Law Day. Can anyone think of a good way to celebrate that?

From wiki: "The law originated in the city of Ingolstadt in the duchy of Bavaria on 23 April 1516"

Seriously thank God for the Rheinheitsgebot! Would all beer taste like Carling without it?
