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:

Scrum developing on P.ie as to who can write the most hyperbolic threads pertaining to Michael Noonan / Enda Kenny being responsible for the end of the world.

Course if they went with Ming's notion of legalisation and taxing that they'd be hit even harder?
What is it Bob Dylan sang, everybody must get stoned.

Government introduce €1 hike in whine.


Yes, for every whine, we will be paying an extra euro. The new measures will be rolled out into Politics.ie from mid-night. It is expected that due to the abundance of whine on this site, significant revenues can be made.

Another budget proposal is to now officially bribe the mods to have them write off p.ie penalty point. Some of the members here might like the idea to have their Sync points quashed for a fiver including Tommy O'Brien...
