As if they don't have enough to do, poking their noses into people's lives and UK businesses, Britain's government ministers have another wheeze.
Forbidding the supermarkets from selling cheap alcohol.
I accept that alcohol is behind many crimes.
But shouldn't the police and government focus on tackling the individual criminal rather than punishing the whole of society?
Why should myself or my parents for example, be prevented from buying half price wine because its on special at Tesco this week, because of some evil and idiotic teenagers?
But this is what socialism is all about. Control, control, control. Nanny knows best.
I doubt such a move will work anyway. The bad guys will still find their booze.
Higher prices is not deterring smokers too much.
But at least it will make the politicians feel good, believing that they have done 'something.'
