The coming closure of Scotland's pubs

Mark my words; it's going to happen:
Alcohol misuse has been identified by ministers as Scotland's next major health issue, it has emerged.
This is from the SNP:
"Simply legislating against irresponsible drinking will not work. A comprehensive solution will only come from a co-ordinated approach from all of these groups.

"That's why I'm calling on drinks companies as a first step to follow a voluntary code of conduct regarding children and the advertising of alcohol.

And the second step? It's going to be legislation or, as we say in Scotland, a ban.

It's Scotland's whisky? You'll have had your dram.
