As anyone who pays vague attention to these boards will have gleaned from my posts I am a massive fan of the cheap drink. In particular my beloved Tesco Value Vodka... but now it seems our romance may be ended by Super-State-Nanny Roisin Shorthall... here she is in action...



http://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/minister-wants-to-impose-minim etc ...

She is the Drugs Minister and her plans include...

...a minimum price for alcohol (apparently it is too cheap)
and
...restricting the number of shops that sell it.

Fascist pig? Concerned Mother? Nanny-state enforcer? All three?

Personally I think it is a bag (or bottle) of nonsense... drink, along with everything else in this country is outrageously expensive.

Id say it will be back to the old days where everyone goes up the north again to get their alcohol - does she know what she is doing?
How is alcohol so cheap here anyway we are one of the most expensive in Europe with all the taxes on alcohol, I suppose she won't mind a few thousand MORE people on the dole with her actions.

What the fuck does skeletor know, im sure she is on a decent enough wage to afford some fine wines.
They should either make it illegal like they did every other drug, or shut the fuck up.

I know right? I mean people can barely afford to drink in pubs because of the exorbitant prices, is it any wonder we have turned to supermarkets and more nights in? The Vintners Association are the only ones who will benefit from this, they have been campaigning for it for years. It is anti-competitive government interference to benefit a special interest group at a cost to the wider population.
