    Comes into force in Wales from Monday.

    50p a unit, means most cans will have to be £1.

    "3 for £20 deals" in Tesco etc will be no more.

    Got myself 27 crates in preparation.

    Get on it :nqat:

    Is this a tax? I mean, does this mean that Joris Bohnson gets to spend more of my money on dodgy American Healthcare companies to research the effects of drink directly because I pay more to drink because they want to stop me from drinking? I need a drink.

    It's priced per unit so Bud will probably get cheaper.

    A bottle of Frosty Jack will be £11.75. :hehe: Kin ell mun.

    Who invented this fucking law? You can't do that to the street drinkers mun. Their life is hard enough as it is. A swig of White Lightening helps the day. Why do you want to do this to them? Jesus Nelly. Fucking wankers in Cardiff Bay.

    This isn’t going to affect me in the slightest. A decent bottle or can of beer or lager currently costs about £1.40 - 1.80 and has about 2.5 units, which under the new law is £1.25.

    Decent bottle of wine is about £4-5. That’s not going to change much either.

    The only people that will really notice a difference is your Tennants Extra and White Lightening drinkers.

    It's not a tax. It raises no money to combat problem drinking. It's utter bullshit if you ask me. Punishing problem drinkers not helping them.

    Won't affect me, I think nothing of spending £5 or £8 on a can. That's because I'm fucking daft mind.
