Why not just raise the tax on bad beer (alcohol) and lower it on good beer (no alcohol)?  How do people with no brains get into such elevated positions?

They travel to, say, Australia on a student visa, become big-scale drug dealers, return home rich and influential, able to buy votes...

Disagree. Totally.

You have it 100% <deleted> about tit.

Bad beer obviously has no alcohol in it.

Good beer has alcohol in it.

Call me old fashioned, but i have never understood this low/no alcohol beer stuff.

You wanna drink a beer, drink a beer.

You wanna not get drunk, or drink something non alcoholic - drink water, o juice or a coke.

Not rocket science.

Heineken sell “Heineken 00” which is available in some bars. I prefer it to orange juice when it’s my turn to drive on boys nights out. Haven’t checked 7/11 or supermarkets but not sure I’d want to drink it at home anyway.

These people have run out of ideas of what else to tax

What a lame, Ill-thought-out excuse. They’re actually steering people away from zero-alcohol drinks because they don’t like the proletariat or ‘aliens’ to be compos mentis.

7/11 has it, Heineken 0,0%, also Makro is selling alcohol free beer from Germany. Oettinger is the brand name.

Yet, no Income Tax on self employed Thais...


I suspect that if you were to look at the aggregate taxes/VAT paid through a persons natural consumer spending (on items and services that are subject to VAT- and remembering that there are some things that are VAT-exempt) and compare that value to what might be collected via that same persons true “earned” income (less the statutory personal exemptions, etc) that, when referring to those on the lower/est end of the salary range, that VAT ends up being a far bigger revenue generator as opposed to an income-based tax which would really only tax a very small net income figure after all deductions are taken.

I do think that those who are taxed on their income largely because they work for a “main stream” type of employer or job where salaries are paid in a manner that is inside the traditional tax reporting/collecting process, do get a somewhat raw deal... but I don’t think that this also means the self-employed get a totally free-ride from taxation either.

Figure this, my local 7-11 won't sell non-alcoholic beer between 2PM and 5PM.

 

 

How about Non Alcoholic water? I  bet if  you made it they wouldnt sell it  at those times too, they should tax  stupidity, they'd  make a fortune

Just because these fools cant brew alcohol free beer they are scared of loosing their clients. Better to drink alc free beer in a bar,if you dont like these sugar drinks, then having one with alc. Ok, not sure how many bars stock them yet. But if there would be a demand it could sell good
