From the government which brought you selective schools only for the rich, and driving in London only for the rich, we now might end up with drinking alcohol only for the rich.
The government presumably sanctioned their adviser to demand higher prcies for alcoholic drinks. Is this being nice to the rich – letting them have first choice at the off licence – or being nasty to the rich, by letting their livers rot first?
Presumably the government will just borrow more to stock the Ministerial drinks cupboards at the higher prices. Doubtless they will still be able to afford a snifter in the back of the Ministerial limo as the taxpayer takes care of their Congestion Charges.
