Prime Minister David Cameron has abandoned a Bloombergesque proposal for the UK that would set a minimum drink price in a bid to curb alcohol abuse.
Like that would work. Home drinking is where its at as the cost is less and there is no one cutting you off.
As we saw this week, even college educated people familiar with the evils of the Devil's Brew, still think its a good idea to drink in their car.
We have defacto minimum drink legislation in bars already, but none of it stops the migration of drinking to homes or other unregulated venues.
Mr. Cameron may head up a nation of drinkers, but as a conservative he should not use his new found egalitarianism as an excuse to collect more taxes.
