Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. As most of you know old Stan can be a bit of a pisshead but through my cider and red wine addled brain am I not getting something here??

    Presumably the producers of beer, spirits, wine and cider are already making good profits??

    If we are to go along with NICE and other goverment advisors we should be setting a minimum price per unit and figures quoted yesterday were something like £5 on the cheapest bottle of vodka gin etc.

    Were the fcuk is this extra money they are making going to end up ???

    Methinks more tax to clear national debt
     
  2. Yep or to pay MP's dodgy expenses. I am sure their cover story will be to curb binge drinking based on our behaviour over the weeks or months of the world cup (We are only drinking heavy because we are losing on penalties again).
     
  3. I wonder when it will be reported that the big Alcohol Warehouses on the Continent are stocking up ready for the British Invasion ?? ....
    :wink: :D
     
  4. Presumably you mean the 50p per Unit that the "nice" guardians of our health are winding up for? http://www.thenorthernecho.co.uk/features/8200007.Counting_the_cost_of_alcohol/

    Interestingly;
    Now, does he believe it will return a net loss in trade revenue or forsee that will probably be a tax and not a gain in profit margin?
