Announcement On VAT On Alcohol

Czech is known for cheap beer. I am told there is going to be a announcement today on VAT on alcohol in Czech Republic. Yes - a tax increase. I'm a bit fuzzy on this but something to do with the EU. I like this excellent post by Serf on what the EU costs the UK.

Update on Fri pm

Beat Reuters to this story although I admit their coverage kicked mine.

As I've blogged elsewhere transparent EU tax is a good thing. This is not transparent, but at least the publicity around it is.

What else has gone up since the Czech Republic joined the EU? I guess the tax is aimed at all those stag parties in Prague that we hear about.
