Winston Churchill famously said “I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me”. With 1 in every 3 pounds spent in a pub going to the taxman, it appears the government takes more from both us and the alcohol than they ever give back.
Despite serving the country for generations, our pubs are under threat from a range of pressures, and right now they are closing at a rate of 3 per day. The Long Live the Local campaign is asking government to ease pressure on pubs by reducing beer duty and other taxes on this key trade. A small reduction in beer duty adds a huge amount of capital to the industry. Please join us in supporting this worthwhile campaign and sign the petition to cut beer tax at https://www.longlivethelocal.pub/.
