No minimum alcohol price in Scotland

Minimum alcohol pricing in Scotland is to be blocked but more daft ideas are still in the pipeline.
New fees for retailers are proposed, which no doubt big supermarkets will welcome as small shops have to stop selling alcohol, and raising the drinking age to 21 is also being considered, which I'm sure will reduce responsible drinking in pubs and increase irresponsible drinking in parks.

The BBC news item is here.
