When I woke up this morning, I was feeling a bit dozy after consuming some pleasant fermented grape juice and distilled essence of cereal on the previous evening, and I THINK I heard this item at the end of the BBC News on Radio 4.
“In order to counteract the bad publicity over the Pasty Tax, the government has decided to add a Green Tax to chilled champagne, to cover the cost of the energy expended in refrigerating it”.
I assume this was an April Fool, but you never know with the bunch of lunatics running the country at the moment. The only thing they have going for them is they are not QUITE as bad as the previous bunch of lunatics.
Mind you, you could tell it was on the BBC, no-one else would think that an extra Green Tax was a good idea, especially on the day that Air Passenger Duty has gone up yet again.
