Alcohol sellers in Carlisle are gearing up to supply drinkers who are expected to pour into the city from north of the border once a law on minimum alcohol pricing comes into force in Scotland.
Have your say
cant understand what good this guy will do,the man for that kind of work should have been a working police emplyee,someone who knows the laws and the inside workings of the police.this guys going to be all talk and no-action man at the cost of every council tax payer.
Ironic is'nt it, all those having thier say on here about this issue did not bother to use a vote and have thier say on the day when the commissioner was being elected!.
@BoB (think Blackadder pronunciation)The turn-out for the police and crime commissioner [PCC] elections in Cumbria was only 16.38 per cent. That means the vast majority of the DEMOS i.e. 83.62% did not vote.The turn-out figure for Carlisle was 14.92 per cent, Copeland 14.21 per cent and Allerdale 16.7 per cent. In Barrow, only 8.37 per cent (4,464 people) took part while his own stomping ground, South Lakeland had the highest turn-out in the county at 23.78 per cent.In total, 64,270 Cumbrians voted and of those who turned out and 2,014 spoiled their ballot papers
