Bomb the bans: Sinn Fein wants to ban alcohol

by | 1st, October 2012

WHY don’t they just go back to blowing up pubs? asks Brendan O’Neill: Sinn Fein’s latest policy:

“We demand measures to ameliorate the toll that excessive drinking takes on society, including 1) Long-term outright ban on the sale of alcohol in outlets including supermarkets and garages; 2) Ban on the presentation and sale of alcohol alongside groceries; 3) Ban on home deliveries of alcohol, advertising on discounted alcohol and advertising of alcohol on social networking sites; 4) Introduction of a 9pm watershed for alcohol advertising on TV; 5) Ending of VAT refunds on alcohol sold below cost.”

Pass the nuts…
