Don't Mention The EU (again)

Minimum pricing for alcohol has raised its ugly head again:
Supermarkets are to be banned from selling wine, beer and spirits below a national "minimum price" under plans to be unveiled by ministers.
Only one paragraph in the Telegraph article hints at the problem:
Overall, their plans will be hard to introduce because they will run up against existing competition laws which ban unfair discrimination against firms which can supply goods at the lowest cost.
I wonder why. It's perfectly clear that this article is deliberately ignoring the EU issue, despite it being pointed out. It's time to do 'a Liverpool' to all the MSM.

  1. Odd how urinating on bodies is exactly what the politicos are doing to the British people!

    In any event, the Telegraph is hardly renowned for factual correctness when it comes to journalism on matters EU!
