What the?

Alcopops tax forcing inflation up: Turnbull
I am not an advocate of the "alcopops" tax (and I really hate the term "alcopops"), but seriously, if Malcolm Turnbull is right, we as a nation have one awesome drinking problem.

"One thing the Government could have done was choose to not put up the price of alcohol but it did and it has flowed into the inflation numbers,"

So let me get this straight, oil prices and interest rates (read: food, transport and housing) have nothing to do with inflation, it's the increased cost of spirits?

I thought it was Labor who were supposed to be incompetent at economics...
