Booze cruises from Scotland

How long will these be allowed to go on? Will the UK government raise prices to compensate?

I always like when vested interests claim it will only make thing worse without offering an alternative solution.

So it looks like the biggest price increase would be on a litre of Bell's, which is £4 per bottle. How many bottles would you have to buy to make it worth travelling to Berwick?

Depends where you live

The biggest price rise will be on super-strength tramp juice such as Frosty Jacks, currently coming in below four quid for three litres, up to north of 11 quid.

So you borrow the firm's Transit and head South to stock up on Frosty Jack which you flog to the local kids to pay for your trip. You buy the whisky and drink it all yourself.

Yes. Put up a deckchair, grab some popcorn, and watch the sideshow of Unintended Consequences unfold.
