I see that the totalitarian instincts of the SNP Scottish government extends to seeking to police the internet;
Plans to restrict online alcohol sales in Scotland have been branded “unenforceable”. The Scottish Government yesterday (19 December)launched a consultation on a fuRther shake-up of the country’s alcohol licensing regime. The proposals include giving more power to the police and licensing boards and improving the “effectiveness” of the licensing regime. Among the measures suggested is banning online multi-buy orders that are placed with retailers outside the country. Under laws introduced in October last year multi-buy deals are banned in Scotland. The consultation paper asks: “If this were introduced, would the police and local authorities be able to carry out meaningful compliance and enforcement action?”
Are they serious? Will Scottish plod be checking on your internet purchases? How? At what cost and at what price to liberty? Under the guise of cracking down on alcohol consumption (Key to life in Scotland I would have thought) these control freaks want to control the internet.
