In Turkey alcohol is becoming a luxury item, and as such, consumption of this nectar has supposedly fallen by 50% over the last three years.

The reason for its decline, is that AKP has heavily taxed alcohol making it expensive for the average person. High alcohol prices might be hitting the tourist trade, as tourists compare the unfavourable prices in Turkey to other destinations.



New legislation will also now limit alcohol consumption in certain areas and make it harder for caterers to serve alcohol at public events.



Excerpt from one of the UK's daily papers.

What I could never understand is that Yakut , angora chankaya is so expensive in the supermarkets in turkey, they export them here and we can buy for a third of the price. How do they get tax on a loss x

Turkey needs to be careful that it doesnt lose the massive revenue that it currently benefits from through tourism,

The AK party do not want the EU, they are playing at is as a charade, the long con does not include being a member of the EU, but is not politic to decare it just yet.

Just to let you know that in England too they are thinking of making it much more expensive too. Was reading this today and if you look on the right hand side, its seems that all juices also are going to become very expensive. I recall yeas ago my daughters saying that it cost 1 for a glass of water when they went to a disco..
