Icelanders didn't go trick or treat yesterday. There was a rumour prices would go up by 25% on beer and wine today so people stood in lines outside the Government liquor stores. They had to let people into the stores in smaller groups. Then as it turns out the prices were only raised by a little more than 5%. People are also buying a lot more food than before and when the banks were taken over by the Government old people were seen leaving the banks carrying plastic bags with their life savings. I can't help starting to wonder how they solve the storage problem?

finns det nåt som sätter eld i baken på folk så att det prishöjningar på alkohol...

kul att isländska staten tror att de kan ta igen alla miljarder i förlust genom att höja spritskatterna...låter lite som den svenska staten...fast de har inga miljarder att ta igen...de gör så ändå... ;)

Japp man har det ju verkligen illa ställt också om man spenderer dagen utanför systemet för att få några futtiga procents rabatt på spriten :-)
