Don't go in for the time restrictions but don't think alcohol should be sold in regular shops especially not petrol stations. Have them in off-licenses along with cigarettes. Remove that one step to temptation. If you want to buy drink, you'll go out of your way to get it, if you are in two minds about it that bit of effort might stop you from going.
Although as the OP mentioned alcoholics will just stock up but your regular person who might have a glass of wine after dinner might not bother if they can't pick it up with their fish fingers.

They work in that they piss me off mightily.

This idea of a cut off point at 22:00 is simply one of the most fucking annoying and useless things a government ever brought in in this country. I cannot wait for the day that that ridiculous nonsense is done away with.

Silly Paddyland politicking.

That day will probably never come. If anything they'll try and push more and more nanny state rules upon us. MUP was just the beginning, they're not going to stop at that.

It'll be gone someday, just like selling booze of Good Friday was eliminated a few years ago.

Stopping alcohol sales at 22:00 is just a farce. A move to appeal to the puritans. One day it'll be removed also as a vote getter.

Why can't we have these regulations and laws reviewed every now and then and get rid of them if they aren't working?
