The government are set to bring in minimum alcohol pricing.
A slab of 24 cans will have a minimum price of €48 and a bottle of spirits will be a minimum of €28.
Ultimate nanny state bolloxogy and pandering again to the vitners association.
I'm on touch site, so link to follow.
(Misspelling in the headline ... no surprises coming from that North Korean unionised crap rag anyway.)
This is absolute nonsense in my opinion. Even the cheapest of beers (shop own brand) will have to be sold at €2 per can (1 Euro per unit of alcohol). Naggins will be a minimum of €8, 70cl bottles will be €28, cans of beer €2 and a whopping €40 for a litre of spirits.
We are heading on a slippery slope towards a fascist Nazi-style dictatorship. Ireland is a First World country, I believe in capitalism. If someone over the legal drinking age wants to buy a can of beer at 50 cents and a shop is offering the cans at such a price, then why should a Hitler-style government stop them?
