This Budget is nothing better than a farse, especially the 1p reduction in fuel. This time last Year the average price here at the pumps in N Ireland was ?1:17 A LTR for Petrol Now it's ?1:34 Per LTR 17p of a Rise.So weve had a penny knocked of a LTR of Fuel & 3p added on to fuel Tax... Am i Missing somthing here? It's CRAZY & the Public ain't STUPID!

In the news recently, it was stated that alcohol was the worst cause of liver disfunction and drunkeness causing hospitalisation and sometimes death. What I would like to know is why the Government doesn't do anything to deter the louts who constantly get drunk and cause problems for the public, the police and hospitals. People who smoke, although it is not a healthy habit, don't do this, yet the price of cigarettes has gone up by 37p per packet and NOTHING on alcohol. Alcohol related problems is much wider spread than that of cigarettes and I for one (not a smoker) cannot relate to the Government's reasoning on this. I have seen the drunks who pour out of the pubs and clubs at night causing havoc, they want to fight, they pester passers by, some end up in the gutter where they have fallen and can't get up, police are called to sort things out when their time could be better spent. What a world we live in - in my opinion we should look for another 'Maggie Thatcher'.
