Budget Beer Prices,


Recommended Posts

In the Past when the Chancellor has added 1p to the price of a Pint of Beer

10p is added at the Pump in Most Pubs

Well... the Chancellor has Deducted 3p from the price of a Pint..

Are we going to see prices reduced in our Pubs.

The excuse might be NO because they are using Old stock.

BUT when prices have been Increased in the past, the prices have gone up immediately.

I don?t assume for a second that reduced duty on alcohol will be passed-on to the customer, even though the phrasing from the chancellor stated that as the benefit to the man on the street.

    • I think WRT Labour, they don't want to open up what would become another devisive Brexit debate this side of an election. Personally I'm ok with this as I want to see the Tories absolutely shellacked at the GE as a consequence for what they've brought on the country. I doubt that Labour will address Brexit much in a first term either, instead concentrating on the big domestic issues e.g. NHS, transport, education. I realise that these these are all interconnected with Brexit, but the lead-up to Brexit itself took up so much bandwidth that nothing else got done, so I can see Labour swerving the Brexit issue fir as long as they can.  Eventually though, you can only ignore the economic gravitational pull of the single largest trading bloc right on your doorstep for so long, and at some point Labour will have to address it, so for me it's more a question of when not if...

    • Leon from electrical initiative changed our old skool kitchen lights with modern dimmable down lighters. I'm really pleased with the work, fitted to a very high standard. Leon has it all, excellent electrician, polite, easy to get on with, turned up on time, excellent communication and charged at fair value. I highly recommend his services.
