A load of sanctimonious bourgeois hypocritical rubbish.Punishing the poor as usual.Ireland needs free booze with beer and wine fountains flowing freely in all its major cities and towns.
Reduced drinking is the objective. People who buy cheap alcohol are generally not alcoholics but if you can buy 12 Budweiser for the same price as 6 Guinness, good chance you'll buy the Bud and if you're willing to drink Bud, 24 Dutch Gold is not much of a step so instead of a 6 pack you buy a slab because its cheap.Which eliminates cheaper brands from the equation....
Other than nimby style snobbery, any actual justification for this?
