7 people who were really keen to get cheaper wine...

… and some people who didn’t understand the fuss

TWITTER WAS ABLAZE with indignation and counter-indignation over the so-called ‘wine tax’ announced in yesterday’s budget.

The €1 duty on 75cl bottles of wine came into effect at midnight, and had people scarpering to their nearest supermarket to stock up on some cheap vino.

Here are some of them…

1. These people in Tesco in Cabra

The prospect of #WineTax would hit Peppa Pig the hardest.

7. Book clubs up and down the country


And some people who didn’t understand the fuss
