Government Bottles Cellar Sell Off.

Recommended Posts

'Government wine cellar escapes cost-cutting axe':

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-13386948

The government has ruled out shutting down its wine cellar to cut costs.

The cellar - containing about £2m worth of wine and spirits - is the most "cost effective" way to supply wine for state banquets and other events, it says.

But the purchase of wines will become "self-financing" - paid for by selling off some of the most expensive bottles.

The cost has been criticised by MPs from different parties - since the general election about £45,000 has been spent on new wine.

The cellar - containing about £2m worth of wine and spirits - is the most "cost effective" way to supply wine for state banquets and other events, it says.

Surely the most cost-effective way to supply wine for state banquets is to have what's comonly called a "bar", where you would take thins thing called "money" in exchange for the said "wine".

The more the "wine" cost, the greater amount of "money" you would have to hand over for it.

In such a way, the "bar" would be entirely self-subsidising, and could even return a modest profit for the "bar owner", and would generate this thing called "employment" as a bonus.

Interesting concept Lepista, but tell me, how would this work without spending and wasting vast sums of public money that can somehow be filtered off to provide "entitled" income and perhaps the odd mortgage payment or two, maybe even some property investment? Im confused... :blink:
