No wonder the fuckers are permanently catatonic.

Ampers said...

Merry Christmas, politicians, and may you all die of liver desease in the new year.

Mac the Knife said...

It's this sort of irresponsible price-cutting that leads to binge-drinking, dressing up in silly costumes and passing idiotic, shitty laws. Something must be done!

Rogerborg said...

Did someone 'leak' that to you, OH? Expect the rozzers to kick in your door any second. They'll be wearing body armour, so aim for the groin.

Dick the Prick said...

So it's only £2.40 normally for Krony and you can have a ciggy too? What utter contemptable mother fucking, arse sucking, kiddy raping bastards.

Shirking From Home said...

Fucking hypocritical cunts.

Mitch said...

Nice to see my tax pounds being put to good use eh? bet the doddery old fuckers put the beer on expenses too and call it prudence.

Barnsley Bill said...

A few points:
How much is a pint these days back in englastan?
Why are they not serving stella?
And who did you "groom" to get this pic?

Drunk as a lordeh? Not surprised at these prices but good to see my tax mpney going to a good cause.

Guthrum said...

Do you think we might be subsidising this OH ?

Dick the Prick said...

Barnsley - £3 for Krony is about standard ish - Wetherspoons maybe about £2.50, but often £3.50 in places you don't stick to to the floor - and I live in Hudds, so some of the suverners may have even greater tales of wo. £1.20 - ain't ever gonna happen.

Barnsley Bill said...

I pay 5 bucks for a pint, at a rate of .40 that is around 2 quid.
However the domestic beer is wet, sweet and fizzy.. And so far from what you would call ber I am forced to drink imported lager or expired greene king in a can when I can get it.
Stella is a premium tipple here and all the wankers drink it from the bottle with the label proudly displayed while grasped in their thumbless hands.
I confess to liking the stella myself but always ask for a glass.

As Lord McEgan of Ballykeegan its trebles all round.

Dick the Prick said...

To be fair Barnsley - we don have oodles and oodles of choice but the comparison between boozers and supermarkets is a real fucking issue. 5 boozers a day going out of business so you can imagine how villages like Penistone (always worth a giggle) are doing.

Tesco are flogging 8 cans (440ml) of Stella for £4 - it's almost a no brainer. The days of walking into a boozer with your paper are becoming a treat rather than just happen to be walking past.

Barnsley Bill said...

25 dollars for 12 bottles of stella(330ml) here. Bu stella is the most expensive beer. Lion red (foul tasting shite, far worse than your pervy uncles home brew) can be had for around 14 bucks for a dozen.

Agree with you Ampers. I was going to add that having been on the website 'Bloggers4Labour' the most heartening item there was along the LHS where it has a list of Labour MPs/members/supporters who have shuffled off this mortal coil(I think) in the previous month.

i hate labour said...

Same self-serving and aloof ruling class behaviour. Remember all the bloody EU arse lickers still get duty free shopping in Brussels. I used to want an election,I wonder if that is enough?

Daisy said...

where i live a pint cost you about $1.50 full price...they have 25 cent beers on special occasions...and no i am not shitting you...

Aardvark said...

At the local pub in Westminster say the Red Lion in Whitehall you wouldnt expect much change from £5 for a pint.

Fancy a Special Vehicle for a Special Occasion? Complete with driver?

Advert available over at my blog, don't know how to put a photo here.

Where do you live Daisy, Eden or Mogadishu?

Daisy said...

dick...i live in illinois...otherwise known as HELL...which is why we need beer cheap

Dick the Prick said...

Daisy - just go on the wagon for the week and buy a job in Washington eh? (ooh I love his hair)

Geez, $1.50 for a jar - how fantastic.

black hole sunset said...

Dick the Prick: "... and I live in Hudds ..."

Blimey, there's a coincidence.

All hail proximate angry person!

BigDai said...

Sorry, but you're going to have to pay me a lot more than that to get me to drink John Smith and Foster.

OwlHoot said...

Sales of beer & wine-making kit must be going through the roof.

One could also save a fortune by growing tobacco. But where can the seeds be bought? Also the plants grow like triffids, and would be a job to keep in a flat. Would one need ultraviolet lamps, like canabbis? Any tips welcome.

It would probably taste like rolled up bus tickets; but that would be more than offset by the satisfaction of depriving the Government of tax revenue with every puff!

Old Holborn said...

Being a borderline alcoholic myself (sorry Alcohol dependency disability activity syndrome), I brew my own beer. Fucking loads of it.

BELCH

Aardvark said...

Even with beer at 25 cents a pint we still probably couldn’t afford it given the way the Pound has fallen through the floor recently.

Daisy said...

dick...they seats are bought and sold in my area and i hear they are pretty reasonable...

i think we are the only state that has one ex-governor making license plates and another preparing for the job...

Dave H. said...

Owlhoot, even if you grow it at home for personal use you are still meant to pay duty on tobacco. I shit you not. Guess whose rule this is.

My 6 gallon fermentation bin is full of Curpinol at the moment: I've been using it as a dip tank for fence posts.

The next brew ought to have quite a kick to it. No doubt before long they'll start charging duty on malt extract.

Northern Colour said...

It's OK. The Lords pay in Euros (!), so that's about five pounds in real money for a pint. Not such a good deal, 'cause the pound's so shite.

I'm trapped in this hell-hole of a country 'cause I can't afford to move out.

Just been stopped by a policeman in a red car for crossing the road.

Dick the Prick said...

Hey up Black Hole. Reckon there's a fair amount of angry bastards in Hudds. Walked along the main drag today - outside M&S (don't know what it's called) and the number of utter fucking wastrels, uurrgghh.

Northern Colour said...

P.S. Fucking self-supporting asexual cock-lickers.

I don't like this situation.

black hole sunset said...

@Dick the Prick

Sure enough, the counter-eugenics movement is in full swing down't Town. Working from home at the moment so I'm not obliged to share in the "cultural vibrancy" (see "low IQ parasitism") - oh cruel fate.

Is it West Gate, the main drag? (could check online but that'd be cheating). Not that it matters, the whole place is a nauseating shit tip - can't be too far away from having more charity shops than lamp-posts.

Cunts.

Warsteiner said...

Fosters costs £2.70 in my local (in West Lancs)but I prefer to tipple on the Warsteiner - £0.20 a pint dearer BUT it does the job - unlike those useless mongs in Westminster.

Ampers Yuletide Correction.

'n Geseende Kersfees en Voerspoedige Nuwe Jaar is the more traditional salutation, I seem to recall.

Perhaps you were from Pretoria.

Not strictly true. More info and seeds available from:

(cough, cough)

OwlHoot said...

Thanks for the tips guys. I have a "Plan B" brewing, as we say in IT Contracting (and probably everywhere else, come to think of it).

Bonzai baccy plants! Sow them like cress, and just grab a pinch each time you need a coffin nail.

You heard it hear first. I'll make my fortune. Chortle!

Back on topic, why buy beer when a bottle of first estate Taylors port is selling for £7 in Sainsburys? It has a bit of a tang, let's say, for the first couple of sips. But on the plus side, it isn't Cockburns!

OwlHoot said...

oops, "here"

Looks like you have already started! Never trust a man who doesn't drink.
