"I think the only case where a tax is levied on a tax"

If you call duty a tax, there's 20% VAT on both fags and booze, which already carry substantial levels of duty.

"If not, how can you be sure they haven't ?"

It's anecdata anyway.  The real picture is mixed:

"We also have data on full-time wages by occupation. These show that wages of professionals have fallen in nominal terms in the last 12 months, by 2.1%. Wages of skilled trades, though, have risen 5.1%; given that employment of them has risen 6.1% this could be evidence that skill shortages are raising some wages. Wages of sales staff have gone up by 6.2%, although the numbers of them have fallen slightly. Since the Q1 2010 trough in employment, though, managers' pay has outstripped others, rising by 14.6% compared to an average of 6.6%.   "

So it depends in the area your friends work in.  Manager or plumber, doing OK. Working professional, probably not so OK.
