Scotland gets less civilised

Scotland has had civilised drinking hours a lot longer than England and Wales. Except on Sunday morning that is, but most Sunday's when I've been in Scotland I've managed to cope.

Sadly things are starting to turn for the worse. Miserable kill joys seem to be calling the shots in Scotland now, and though minimum pricing for alcohol has not come in yet, new licencing laws have. As well as making it easier for whingers to complain restrictions have been put in place on how and when alcohol can be sold and surprise, surprise the retailers are having to pay more for the privilege.

I've already heard reports of small shops stopping selling alcohol as the expense is too great, and even worse pubs have been shut.

Sadly Scotland is moving from being a beacon of civilisation back into the dark ages.
