    Same reason everything else is cheap everywhere but the uk

    Did you know that Off-Liscence shops have 300% Duty on a bottle of wine?
    Think about it like this
    They buy it for 2, they put profit on (approx15% on wine) 2.30 , then the duty = 9.20 for this bottle of wine which should have cost you less than 3, yet in France you'll get the same bloody thing for about 50p
    Basically we in the uk just get hammered for tax on everything, I've spoken to people in other countries and I mentioned road tax........They don''t have it!

    We the British people are just scammed the whole time and aparently the UK is in debt............HOW??

    Ok I'm gonna be swearing about this all day now

    Edit: @Busy......Not at the moment it is'nt, we're nearlly $2 - 1
