Alcohol Excise is about to increase the cost of your favourite spirits in February
Alcohol and cigarettes are on the rise again on February 05.
I hit the streets yesterday to ask how much tax people think the Government collect from a standard 700ml bottle of Bundaberg Rum?
Do you like the fact the Government increase alcohol and tobacco prices twice a year? Do you think the increases are helping to reduce people's habits, or are we driving some people to harsher, cheaper stimulants like illicit drugs?

Always keen to hear what you have to say on these types of matters.
These governments have got to stop spending money on themselves and creating more dodgey jobs for there mates, that’s half the reason the country is broke.
