The Alcohol Health Alliance supports government extortion

Ian Gilmore's Alcohol Health Alliance is worried that the government might bring an end to the alcohol duty escalator and has mobilised the likes of the Institute of Alcohol Studies to call for more above-inflation tax rises on wine and spirits.

As usual, they rely on half-truths, misrepresentations and lying by omission. And, for that matter, lying by telling lies. I've written a blog post for the IEA here. Please read it.
