The Illuminati are destroying everything that binds us together. Another front in this war, the British government is taxing pubs out of business. England is losing 50 pubs a week.

A British pub is much more than a place to get drunk. It is a meeting place, the focal point of the community. Everyone has a ‘local’.

Pubs are the last remnants of community in atomized Britain.

However, due to the crippling effect of government taxation, they are falling like dominos.

Since the start of the financial crisis in 2008, 4500 pubs have closed down. We are currently losing 50 a week.

Many people can longer afford to drink in a pub and buy beer from supermarkets instead. The average cost of a pint of beer in a pub is £3 ($4.75); from a supermarket, it is £1 ($1.55.)

When I was last in England, I noticed the number of people in my local had declined dramatically. In my hometown of 25,000 people, there were about 15 pubs. Now some of them are boarded up, sad shells of their former selves.

When I see them, I think of the life that’s vanished.

Men would talk and joke after a hard day’s work. Those in crisis would receive aid from their neighbours. Young men would have the odd fight (rather than sitting indoors playing sadistic video games). Boy and girls from local families fell in love there.

WARFARE

The government has placed monstrous taxes on beer.

These tax increases widen the gap between pubs and supermarkets, because pubs have much higher overheads.

For every £3 pint sold, more than £1 goes into the government coffers!

The duty on beer in Britain is an outrageous 55 pence per pint! This is 8 times more than the beer duty in France (a measly 7p) and 11 times more than Germany (5p)!

The duty on beer is much higher, in relative terms, than spirits. Britain has the smallest gap between beer and spirits duty in Europe. This is a sign that beer is being specifically targeted.

duties.pngUnder the previous New Labour government (1997-2010) the duty on beer increased by 60%, but the duty on spirits only increased by 25%. A few years ago, a former aide to Jack Straw revealed that Labour’s ‘open door’ immigration policy was designed to destroy British culture forever. Were the tax increases on beer intended to do the same?

In March this year, Chancellor George Osborne further tightened the noose. He introduced a ‘duty elevator’ putting the yearly increase on alcohol duty at 2% over the rate of inflation. So that’s yearly inflation (currently 3%) + 2% EVERY YEAR!

This policy is against government self-interest. Increasing the Excise Duty actually lowers the revenue intake on beer, and sabotages that future tax take. Since the duty hikes, beer sales have fallen dramatically and thousands of pubs have closed down.

Added to this criminally high excise duty, the government charges a 20% VAT charge! On a £3 pint that is 50p!

The government claims that high taxes on beer pay for alcohol related hospital admissions. The opposite is the case: people can no longer afford to drink beer in a supervised environment, and instead buy cheap spirits from supermarkets. In the last 10 years, alcohol-related hospital admissions have more than doubled!

pubchart.pngOn top of beer taxes, pubs have to pay employment tax, business rates, rent, staff costs and bills. Obviously they cannot absorb the taxes hikes like multi-national supermarkets.

The pub industry accounts for nearly 1,000,000 jobs. In tough economic times you would expect the government to protect the sector, instead they are murdering it.

The pub unions accuse the government of bad policy. They don’t realize that our leaders are traitors who sold their souls to the Illuminati. We need to be uprooted from our communities to accept the New World Order.

CONCLUSION

Pubs are being taxed to extinction. Brits cannot take part in their communities.  Clearly they want us sitting at home in front of the TV, rather than talking to people.

The War on Pubs is intended to weaken political resistance.  Pubs are the last places in Britain where men get together and talk. In times of social turmoil, they act as dens of revolt.

COMMENT:
I love PUBS, and I love the concept of Pubs. 
I am not a huge patron….probably more an “average” Pub Patron.
When in my own City….or in another City….I prefer PUBs versus Restaurants……as I find PUB food very good and both the drinks and food at a very reasonable price. The overall PUB experience is quite fun and relaxing.
While I haven’t been to Britain…..it is obvious to many  that Pubs are part of British Culture. They form a  crucial part of the culture, a way to bond and create a stronger community.
Take that “bonding” mechanism away from a culture…what do you have ? You have the start of the UNravelling of the culture and its extinction.
As the article states…one becomes “atomized”, and thus NOT “molecularized ” ……aka part of the greater society.
IMHO, this is no fluke…but a pre-meditated attack to undermine the culture.
The Gov’ts…… while idiots at the best of times…are fully aware of the impacts in these cultural- linear relationships. The attack is not by blunt force, but by political -bureaucratic stealth, often via  taxation. One would think that the Gov’t would realize that inequity in the taxation and the collateral consequences if it was truly concerned for their societies stability well-being.

Clearly, the Gov’t is herding people to get their beer from supermarkets ( likely huge multinational corporations ), thus killing off the Pubs. In addition, via immigration, the historical demographics are diluted where the PUBS may not be a part of the immigrant culture, or avoided because of the new evolving culture/s.
Recall my past post re: the OPIUM WARS…the Elite decided the tactic to conquer China would be to force drugs on the citizens.

More evidence of the ATTACK by Gov’t on behalf of their backroom masters.
The formula is simple….take any CULTURE ” X ” , and determine  the TOP 5-10 variables that define (=bind) it. Then…determine  a plan to undermine these key variables . CULTURE (often= “Nation”) is often extinct within a generation if this is implemented . 
Sad to say, ….but IMHO, …..Britain will hit 3rd World Status before the rest of the Western World.
