Alcohol now so cheap 13 pints can be bought for price of cinema ticket
Looks like it’s cinema which is expensive:
Teenagers are able to buy more than 13 pints of cider for the price of a cinema ticket, according to a new report which says children are being put at risk by “pocket money prices.”
The study from the Alcohol Health Alliance says supermarkets are selling alcohol at prices that are attracting children and harmful drinkers, because of the absence of minimum prices.
The research found the cheapest alcohol being sold at 16 pence per unit – far below a 50 pence limit which was debated, before being shelved by the Coalition Government.
Consumers could buy two and a half bottles of the cheapest white cider – Frosty Jacks – containing more than 13 pints for the standard £8.24 paid for an off-peak cinema tickets, the study found.
And what’s this about teenagers? Got to be 18 to buy cider don’t you?
