No Cheap Booze for You Lot !

David Cameron is seriously misguided

Not my words (as you might have expected) but those of British Retail Consortium food director, Andrew Opie

What’s he on about? – the UK Government’s plan to introduce a minimum selling price for alcohol in England and Wales

Mr Cameron thinks by making alcohol more expensive, this will curb binge drinking and end the sight of drunken louts in town centres of an evening

[Hhmm, I think retailers in Scotland will do a roaring trade as hordes of folk in England and Wales make a run across the border to stock up on cheap booze denied them at home] 😆
