Axe the Beer Tax - please visit the site to read more, they have a 5 point manifesto...
1. To stop plans to increase beer tax by up to a third
2. To enforce existing laws - not create new ones - to deal firmly with irresponsible drinkers and premises
3. To end the irresponsible promotion of alcohol in supermarkets, pubs and elsewhere
4. To trust responsible adults to make informed choices about what they drink, not punish them for the actions of an irresponsible minority
5. To support the British pub as a vital part of social life in local communities.
