Police chiefs back minimum unit price for alcohol
Why? there is no evidence that this works.
The people who drink sensibly, won't be effected unless the minimum price is so restrictive as to unaffordable. and unless it is unaffordable, it won't have any effect on those who abuse alcohol at the price it is.
All it will mean is that sensible people, OAPs etc will have to pay more for a small pleasure in life.
The way to deal with drunkeness is to apply the existing laws and fine people heavily for being drunk and disorderly
