Blowing the budget on booze

  • I don't have a gas guzzler (or indeed any car)
  • I don't smoke
  • I don't fly (well not for past 3 years)
  • My income is below taxable levels
  • Increase in winter fuel credit for over 60's (must visit parents more....)

  • Tax on alcohol....but dose dependent......
  • No reinstatement of 10% tax banding
  • Will have to pay the extra 1.8p a litre duty on petrol from August - could make peripheral hospital attachments that bit more expensive.
The BBC reckon I will be £16.32 worse off next year, all of it alcohol related........ so since the slcohol duty changes don't kick in til sunday...........Cheers!
