Meanwhile, here in the Land of the Fee and the Home of the Slave, alcohol is considered essential.

My buddy runs a liquor store and they are doing over $100,000 a day!

According to a report from Edinburgh Live, a shopper in the United Kingdom claims she was fined for buying only wine, potato chips, and other snacks from a supermarket after officers searched her shopping bag.
Edinburgh Live was contacted by a reader, who said, β€œI was walking through Holyrood Park on Sunday afternoon (5 April) on my way back from Morrisons (a supermarket). Two officers asked to look inside my bag, and then fined me for only having crisps, other snacks and a bottle of wine.”


Further reports of shoppers being handed fines for buying non-essential goods, such as wine, with police rifling through shoppers’ belongings to ensure that only essential goods have been purchased.

Each report claims that a fine of Β£30 or roughly $37 were given to shoppers, on the grounds that they had left their homes without a good reason, in this case, buying non-essential items.


β€œTwo people I know in West Lothian: a nurse in uniform leaving a patient’s house and someone leaving a shop with just a bottle of wine was fined Β£30,” a West Lothian resident reported on Twitter.


Another Twitter user wrote, β€œA friend of my daughter was fined Β£30 on the spot in Edinburgh the other night having just bought wine and snacks, both of which are non-essential. Still seems a bit draconian to me.”

When does the blow back start?

What a joke of a country. USA may be thoroughly jewed but damn Cuck Island continues to set the record. Considering how well Sweden has handled the hoax virus it's a shame to admit the U.K. is back on top for the world's most cucked and stupid white nation.

On the other hand, maybe the police were being fashy and hiding their power level, and fined her for being a fatso?
