Booze Matters - Scottish Minimum Booze Pricing
My commiserations to the good people of Scotland, who are having to endure the heavy handed approach of Scottish Nanny and her experiment in minimum alcohol pricing.
Scottish Nanny has decreed that she will set a minimum price for alcohol of 50p per unit. This is 5p higher than the figure which had been proposed in the previous parliament, and 10p higher than the daft proposal of English Nanny to raise booze prices to a minimum of 40p per unit.
Nanny is of the view that this would have a significant impact on drinking habits.
I beg to differ, as noted many times on this site before, those who wish to drink themselves to oblivion with super strength foul tasting shit will continue to do so. The rest of us will end up paying more for our drink, whilst Nanny receives a nice little earner from the increased tax.
