No cheap booze via the net

I had been expecting to have to write a post today praising the EU about lifting restrictions of the purchase of cheap booze and fags from low duty countries via the internet. The free movement of goods and services has being one of it's founding principals I fully expected the ECJ to rule that EU citizens should be able to buy what they want from where they want how they want. This is what you would expect from a free trade zone. But the EU is not a free trade zone it is a Customs Union so that was not be.
