poor people wont be put off by the price, they will just cut out something else to pay for it.
I wouldnt be surprised if people set up the equivalent of booze cruises to pop over the border and fill up a van with cheap booze to sell on.
In what way are they dire ?

Its not just white lightening though is it, just about everything is bootlegged now, especially vodka, apparently these drinkls are everywhere now. How about people on low wages or pensioners who go to the pub for a pint or two and comapny, the prices in pubs are vastly different to supermarkets - that is if you can even find a pub still open in your area and as a previous poster said why should people who drink responsibly be penalised for those who don't, target the problem but as usual everyone suffers.

most are awful. I thought the reason I don't like pubs was because of the smoking, but after the ban I found out it was the pubs themselves I don't like.
Quiet pubs are dull as ditch water and rowdy pubs are just too rowdy. And pubs that show football are the dregs.
A few do good live music, but most don't.
and of course today they are way too expensive to enjoy a night out
