It has tripled in price. Cheap whisky, supermarket own brands etc is now a minimum of £14.00 a bottle, about a £2.50 increase. The fucking hypocrites of the SNP screamed blue murder about the Chancellor raising the price of whisky by 36p, because it would damage the industry. When I queried my MSP as to what a £2.50 increase would do, I had to threaten her with a formal complaint before she finally admitted, yes it would damage the industry, but it will (probably may) save a few lives each year. Mrs Sas's comment on the matter I feel is a very valid point, she commented that more children will go hungry as a result of this deeply flawed policy.
