Scottish Nanny To Ration Booze
Scottish Nanny appears to have taken leave of her senses, as indicated by a plan put forward by her chums from an alcohol charity.
The plan would require businesses, from global supermarket chains to corner shops and restaurants, to declare the volume of alcohol they sold, with such data crucial in quantifying how much was being bought, where and from whom.
The data would then be used to ration alcohol sales. Alison Douglas, chief executive of Alcohol Focus Scotland, said restrictions on how much drink can be sold could form part of the conditions of a licence when they are granted by local authorities.
All very well and jolly, if you are part of the new wave temperance movement, maybe. Except that this plan is bollocks:
1 Using alcohol sales figures and projections is not a gauge for how much people consumed booze.
2 Scots would simply pop over the border to Carlisle and stock up there.
A totally idiotic plan, put forward by idiotic people. It wouldn't make the slightest difference to alcohol consumption, and would add another layer of bureaucracy to hard pressed shopkeepers.
