    It's all about moving the bell curve, so that the peak moves away from heavy drinking towards tee-totallism. The idea is that if you can shift the peak, then you'll move people out of the "at risk" band, and so overall you'll have fewer alkies.

    Whether there's any good science behind this, I've not a clue!

    He means Scots.

    However he should really be talking about alcoholics who live in Scotland.

    Alcoholics will still drink regardless of the price of alcohol

    There is already a problem in the UK with fake alcohol, which is basically methanol, and with minimum pricing this problem will get bigger.

    Folks here in Bavaria appear to drink responsibly, whether in the pub or on the train, never see a fight for the life of me. I don't get it. The last time I saw a fight break out here in Munich was a couple of guys with northern English accents. Australians get a bit rowdy n all as do some Eastern Europeans come to think of it.
    “We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we've just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we've barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us.”
