Britian is implementing Sin taxes:
Many Britons were resigning themselves to more puritanical lifestyles
Thursday as they faced the prospect of "sin taxes" that will increase
the cost of alcohol, cigarettes, gas-guzzling cars and, potentially,
Basically all of life's little pleasures that may give your sorry existence a chance to have a reprieve from your shitty every daily life. Oh yeah, and Plastic bags. Hmm… Yeah, I can see where they are coming from..wait, no..I don't. Plastic bags are sinful? When did that happen? Did I miss a day in school or something?
The Labour Party government is hoping that hiking taxes on booze will help curb Britain's binge-drinking culture.
Ahh, so they are doing this for the good of their citizens, even if they disagree? Ahh, those great guys at Labor, they know what's best for you , to the degree that you won;t even be given a choice in the matter. And here I thought it was just a ploy to collect obscene new amounts in tax money to waste and plunder! Silly me!
