Minimum alcohol price in Scotland to be set at 50p a unit
A bottle of wine will be at least £4.69 and four cans of lager £3.52 under Scottish ministers\’ proposals
1) It\’s illegal.
2) If you want to raiwe the price of something why in buggery are you giving the profits to the producers rather than claiming it in tax?
Scottish Labour is also preparing to support the policy if Alex Salmond\’s government presses on with plans for a £130m \”health levy\” on supermarkets to claw back the £125m increase in their revenues from a 50p minimum price.
Why the fuck are they doing it that way? Just increase the tax on booze in the first damn place! Are they all mad?
Seriously, can someone explain this idiocy to me?
