    Great so its only a 1p rise insntead of 3p. Not exactly a cause for celebrating now and we're still going to get a 3p rise over over the next 10 months so it won't exactly make much different. Won't stop me voting them out.

    And voting them out won't do any good. None of the other main parties oppose the taxation on fuel as far as I can tell.

    Spot on, if anything, the opposition will raise it more, once elected. ( perish the thought ).

    This is the REAL shocker for me! I don't drink wine or beer, the only drink I can stand Is alcohol. Why attack just Cider? The yobs who drink cider are just going to steal more money to buy the cider so raising the price won't really affect them!

    Really, 10% on Zider? Cynically I think it's probably because the Govt. have realised that it's popular..... or am I wrong?
