Jami-lee Ross had to give Jacinda Ardern a hand with Labour’s alcohol policy on Breakfast this morning. Classic.
Yes Jacinda, Jami-Lee was right. Here’s the policy that Labour and Lianne Dalziel are promoting.
“We should set a minimum price that would prevent wine from being sold for less than $2 for a standard drink.”
Ardern should find out about the policies she’s promoting before grandstanding on them.
But since we are talking specifics there are 37 standard drinks in a litre of spirits - so the cheapest 1l bottle of gin or vodka, or rum under Labour’s policy would be $74.
Currently a litre of top shelf Bombay Sapphire Gin (A Whale favourite) goes for $45.
And Labour’s policy would mean the cheapest dozen beer cans would cost a minimum of $24.
And they’re seriously trying to sell this policy to Waitakere man? I hope so.
