On the one hand the EU's ruling concerning cross-border duty rates on internet purchases hurts the consumer; but then the myriad of independent merchants that comprise the UK's flourishing wine sector would have suffered immensely. The government would have just slapped taxes somewhere else to cover any income shortfall anyway...

BBC
"Retailers have expressed relief at a European court ruling against allowing consumers to buy drinks and cigarettes on-line at lower duties from abroad. The decision means shoppers buying cheaper goods abroad will still have to accompany the goods back themselves.... A Treasury spokesman said the government welcomed the ruling and while it supported the freedoms of the EU single market, it wanted to eliminate "abuse" of those rights. "
