Don’t pay alcohol tax

The argument that Margaret Hamilton (W/E Australian 17-18 Oct 2009) uses to support alcohol tax is that a reduction in sales should ensure. She argues that this is the most effective mechanism to induce reduction of consumption, and that reduction of consumption at all levels of usage helps overall healthy levels of consumption. By the same token, if moderate drinkers, cease drinking at all, the great deline in consumption will push the price of alcohol to a level unaffordable by most heavy users, thus limiting their consumption.  So my advice – don’t buy alcohol, don’t pay the tax, and put life back into your community.
