Thread: Budget 2013 - Thread Creation On Politics.ie To Be Taxed

  1. #1

    Default Budget 2013 - Thread Creation On Politics.ie To Be Taxed

    To further improve the budgetary situation Minister Noonan will with effect from midnight tonight increase excise duty on a pint of beer or cider by 10 cent, on a standard measure of spirits by 10 cent and on a 75 cl bottle of wine by €1, with pro-rata increases on other alcohol products.

    Since this will not be sufficient to maintain high salaries in the public sector and to pay green fees for Sean FitzPatrick and his gang the Minister has introduced a new and innovative measure that will create an entirely new revenue stream for the state.

    With effect from midnight tonight all new threads on Politics.ie will be taxed at a 100% and a fee per word of €10 will be introduced. This announcement was followed by an uproar in the Dáil and complete mayhem on the politics.ie website...

    Oh! That's alright. I misread the title of the thread, and thought that it said:

    Course if they went with Ming's notion of legalisation and taxing that they'd be hit even harder?
