Proposed increase of wine casks
New to this...
The State Health Minister is proposing an increase in the "standard drink" price.
Because of a "selected" minority abusing alcohol, he will be penalizing everyone who can only afford to imbibe cheaper brands of cask wine.
My wife and I have a couple of wines each night, presently drinking a brand which costs about $13.
The Minister , in is wisdom, will be upping the price to approximately $40 - $50 per cask!!!! If thats the case, it's another pleasure gone.
Does anyone know of any petitions or such to try and help aged pensioners right this wrong?
I imagine the minister's response would be "not fair to the others" if pensioners were made exempt.
Well it's not fair to the 95% of us!
