Yehay.. Scottish Government to help small shops and post offices

Lies all lies, it's not true of course. They wouldn't consider it. Dammit even the EU is coming up with stuff that is better.

No the Scots are putting together their plans to ban fag machines and cigarette displays.

According to the Scottish Grocers Federation this will cost,
"between £5,000 and £10,000 for each shop to comply with the new regulations".

Which of course they can all afford easily can't they. No it will bethe small corner shops and the Post Offices that will be hammered by this illiberal, foolish legislation. The big supermarkets nmust be rubbing their hands with glee as more competition is put out of business by the idiotic Scottish Government.

Oh and though I was nice about Charlie MaCreevy's plans to lighten the burden on small businesses up there, please don't get me wrong. UKIP belives that businesses like those should be exempt from the whole gamut of pettifogging rules, but credit where credit is due.
