"A SCOTTISH supermarket chain has banned Buckfast from its shelves after complaints that the tonic wine is fuelling antisocial behaviour by young people.The response of un-named 'drink distributors' was quite amusing, I thought:
The David Sands supermarket group said it had decided to ban Buckfast as part of its commitment to help tackle social problems in the communities it served.
The move came after a request by the Dunfermline and West Fife MP, Willie Rennie, who hopes that other retailers will follow."
"[They] hit back, saying Scottish politicians have "lost the plot" and compared it to banning one brand of cigarettes in order to prevent lung cancer."I'm not in favour of banning buckie but the analogy isn't really accurate because (killer fact time) Buckfast has more caffine in it than Red Bull, apparently. Next best thing if you don't have any Peruvian marching powder, in other words.
