Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

UK always taxed wine higher than beer for political reasons, no reason why beer drinkers should not pay their 'fair share'. France on the other hand charges 23% employee contributions on ALL income + 46% employee contributions, believing that the poor should pay their way too. Makes the Swiss rate of around 6% (roughly half the UK rate) for both look like a huge deal.
I was very pleasantly surprised by wine prices here compared to the UK and Ireland.
