BBC bad/erroneous reporting on Chancellors speach

The BBC repeats that duty has gone down by 2 pence not the 2% that the Chancellor announced.

Aunty, stop molesting children and report facts accurately.

9. Cutting beer duty for the third year in a row

There will be another penny off a pint, a 2% cut for spirits and most ciders, and a freeze on duty on wine.
