Alcohol-smuggling

costs the United Kingdom a billion pounds
($1.5 billion) every year
in lost tax-revenue.
But how often do we hear
about it ?  Our 'free press'
would rather report on 20 cannabis plants
seized in suburbia, or how some parentally
deranged teenager took more than a little
too much Ecstasy - plus alcohol,
paracetamol and god-knows-what
(though of course we're not told that)
at someone else's 'party'
and ended up in hospital.
