      Personally it won't affect me as I don't drink but if it keeps the drunks of the streets and out of A&E at Hospitals then I'm all for it.

      I agree, not a big drinker myself and at the moment I can't drink so it will not affect me at all but things are getting out of hand now with drunks on the streets and most of the crime coming from that so if this price plan works then go for it.

      its not going to make a difference at all shops like asda and beer shops will always do deals like 3 packs for 15 quid or something stupid so i think its useless they should do it so no one can buy booze without photo I.D

      I did read the other day that they are supposed to be banning deals such as buy one get one free and 3 for 2 deals so hopefully that sticks and they do ban those kind of deals. I think myself it will curb some problems but as always people will always find a way to get it even if it is dearer.
