Supermarkets ‘to be banned from discounting multiple wine bottles’
Supermarkets will be banned from discounting multiple bottles of wine under Government plans to be set out within days. The Coalition’s alcohol strategy — expected to be launched next week — will propose that special deals which encourage shoppers to buy in bulk should be outlawed, The Daily Telegraph has learnt.
That’s really very funny in one manner. For if wholesale quantities are not cheaper than retail ones then how in hell can the wholesale chain work? How are you going to differentiate between the corner shop stocking up at the cash and carry, or the B&B doing the same, and someone nipping in to stock up for a party?
It’s also quite appalling in another manner. For if the Tories are acting like this, and we all know that Labour would be worse, then where is the possibility of having a government that treats us as adults?
We’re back to hang the lot of them I suppose.
