Oh, what an illiberal bunch the SNP are. Holyrood, where they are in the minority, very clearly consigned their unfair, discriminatory and completely unnecessary plans to ban under 21s from buying alcohol in off sales to the dustbin. The Nats showed their disrespect for the will of Parliament by deciding to carry on with their plans anyway. They persuaded their conference to back their plans, albeit not overwhelmingly.
There is a glimmer of hope, though - their youth wing put up a spirited opposition to the proposals.
If I were them, I'd be wondering if independence would be all it was cracked up to be if I had to live under such an illiberal Government.
