you dont need minimum pricing.what you need is a sensible government to make people responsible for their own actions instead of blaming the drinks industry or pubs and supermarkets.why should the majority suffer for the actions of the few.if someone goes out,gets tanked up and causes trouble why not hit them with a heavy fine that can be taken from bank accounts and tag them to keep them out of licensed premises for three months for example.punish the guilty.another argument that does not add up is the that alcohol is cheaper than water.NO IT ISNT.i can get 5ltrs of water in tesco for 95p.i dont know anywhere you can buy 5ltrs of cheap beer for that price.if you do let me know where.
