Today is a red letter day in stupidity, unpopular SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon will be losing massive support at the ballot box. What has she gone and done? Nicola Sturgeon has imposed minimum price on alcohol for Scots, already on Facebook, a nationalist supporter has called her a ‘bitch’ and a ‘cow’. The teary eyed young pissed guy felt a pressing need to tell people that Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP has lost his vote.
But…….. he won’t be the only one who wouldn’t be voting SNP, minimum price on alcohol is the SNP’s poll tax, doesn’t matter what your political belief is, drinkers will be outraged that they are being wilfully fleeced.
Just as we seen the ferry runs to
for booze, we will see convoy after convoy of proud Scots make the trip south
to fill up cars, van and trucks with booze. England
The black market in cheap booze will begin.
Get set for the North of England booze cruise,
to be a world leader, we had the enlightenment but under the SNP, we have been
plunged into the ‘dark’. Nicola Sturgeon seen and hyped as serious politician is
just a fool, and Scots don’t suffer fools gladly. Sturgeon has no problems when
it comes to money, she rakes in a fortune plus as First Minister she has no
problem getting freebies. Scotland
The cheapest 2 litre bottle of cider goes from £1.99 to £5.
Anne-Marie Trevelyan, the Conservative MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed said:
“It may be that this new Scottish pricing policy encourages entrepreneurial activity in Berwick to offer alcohol with a price differential from across the Border. I remember the booze cruise activity to
Calais in France
years ago by
residents; and we may well see this happen at the Border at Berwick.” UK
The price hike policy will affect the poor the most, while SNP MPs get drunk on cheap booze in the House of Commons, the Scottish working class public will suffer. Nicola Sturgeon just increased the rate of poverty on the poorest in society who haven’t a lot to start of with, it is a contemptible act.
Mike Beale, Chief Executive Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA), said:
“The Scottish Government's policy will increase the price of around half of the alcohol on supermarket shelves and will impact most drinkers, particularly those on lowest incomes”.
Christopher Snowdon, the director of lifestyle economics at the
said: Institute of Economic Affairs
“I would say that Scots will be hopping across the border to buy alcohol that is, in some cases, less than half price. As with booze cruises to
France, some will be
doing it legally for their own consumption and others will be doing it to sell
illegally in .
A large and legal online business is likely to emerge to satisfy demand and
there is nothing the SNP can do about it”. Scotland
“'This is their folly and they will have to live with the consequences. For those who live a long way from the English border, we may see a growth in home brewing and home distilling. A rise in drug use is also on the cards as people use substances such as Spice as a substitute for cheap alcohol”.
The acts of the SNP will also affect some corner shop businesses which will drastically reduce their viability once the ‘black market’ kicks in creating unemployment.
Finally, the folly of the SNP will create an opportunity for opposition political party who pledge to scrap the minimum price on alcohol; this issue will be turned into an emotional issue because it deprives Scots of their right to exercise choice. You can expect to see a lot of hate coming Nicola Sturgeon’s and the SNP’s way, and its all self inflicted and deserved, expect Sturgeon to be doing closed events where the public isn’t allowed in.
Nicola Sturgeon may have thought she turned off the alcohol tap, but she has opened the hate tap and its going to be a gusher, no one will be forgiving her this stunt, and as to indyref 2, she can forget that notion.
The fight to repeal minimum price on alcohol starts now!
