    A bit of tabloidation, really it's a 10% rise on the duty payable on Cider, which won't affect the end price too much.

    Still, it's weird how cider has been targeted along with alcopops. I can feel the people taking to the streets in Somerset!

    15,000 civil servants to be relocated outside London

    Those in the regions have been telling them to do this for years!

    I still remember when the last labour government relocated some to Glasgow:o.
    The BBC interviewed some nerd wearing a pinstripe and a bowler. Some of his opinions were quite ridiculous and the interiewer asked if he had ever been to Scotland "My good man, I was in Newcastle only last week". The interviewer struggled hard to keep a straight face:rotfl:

    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!

    Wasn't there always a tax break on Cider to support the English producers ?

    They haven't.

    Duty on beer, wine and spirits rises 2% a year until 2013.
    I'm not cynical I'm realistic :p

    It's not a 1p rise.

    The Government has withdrawn the subsidy to the refining industry to produce clean biofuels, which make up between 5 per cent and 7 per cent of every litre from the forecourt. That will add a further 1p a litre to the pump price when it feeds through from April 1

    So its 2p from April. Plus VAT.
