Either it isn't or it is against EU law. Take your pick. On the face of it, any attempt to impose minimum pricing, unless authorised by EU law, is a restriction on the free movement of goods and could be regarded breaching EU law – especially if it had a discriminatory effect on other EU member states.

It doesn't matter whether they decide it's legal or not....it still won't work!

Of course it won't work ... but it keeps attention off other issues.

Maybe, after all, this is where they've gone a step too far in showing their iron-clad boot! We all know how and why it won't work --- and there's the thin edge of the wedge for ignoring all their illegal 'laws.'

Whatever, it is an excellent illustration of how our politicians are making decisions based on power they think they still have but have actually given away to the EU.

I am sure that it's no coincidence that the two foremost binge-drinking countries are the UK & Russia...it is a measure of despair in societies that have failed.
Alcohol is a drug like any other & price will not deter anyone from getting a fix.
I advocate the legalisation of drugs; all of them.
If a fraction of the money spent on the unwinnable War on Drugs had been spent on providing a real & worthwhile education for our children...and a lot of their parents....there would be no rending of garments & beating of breasts today.
But this was all planned...our society has been dumbed down to the extent that a tangible sense of self-worth has been erased.

I entirely agree. I can't think of an occasion when prohibition had a positive outcome.

Thanks for the link as always, legal or not I'd imagine Cameron won't be challenging it anytime soon.

Like anouncing "crackdowns" on immigration and travellers while sneaking through a 100,000-house suburb defiling the greenbelt between Coventry and Birmingham to house the immigrants that won't be here according to Theresa May. PDT_Armataz_01_33 As if people will want to live near that horrid HS2 wastemoney vanity project anyway.

Can someone please set up a political party that puts the interests of ordinary English people first for once? Or is that an oxymoron?
