Just saw the news and Scotland is considering bringing in a standard charge per unit of alcohol. Say 25p per unit, a can of Skol will be about 75p and Stella about Â£1.30. What about wine and spirits ? The problem does not lie with the cheap alcohol, but the irresponsible attitude of those who consume it. Best solution would be to arrest a drunk and disorderly person then fast track him through the courts (as they did with football hooligans) on a Monday and fine them Â£500. That way those who drink responsibly will not suffer. If alcohol goes up it will solve nothing, people will make their own or steal to afford it.
