The Green’s 2010 manifesto:

“Gradually increase alcohol and tobacco taxes by about 50% to match anticipated increases in expenditures on the NHS, raising £1.4bn in 2010 rising to £5.6bn by 2013.

An Early Day Motion signed this month by their only MP:

“That this House welcomes the ending of the beer duty escalator and the positive impact of two successive beer duty cuts in the 2013 and 2014 Budgets … notes that beer duty is now 13 per cent lower than under the tax rises previously planned … and urges the Government to consider a further cut in beer duty in the 2015 Budget

Shurely shome mishtake?
