Does anyone know if the minimum pricing laws affect sales, offers and other discounts?
I might be in England for a few days in August and if it's cheaper for me to get some down there I might do that instead.
My mate drinks that, might give it a try next time I'm over there.
I agree the media and the Democrats are way exaggerating. Here an example - someone seriously suggesting Trump's performance at the Helsinki Summit will live equally in infamy as Pearl Harbour or Kristallnacht. 💀 These people have utterly lost the plot. https://www.mediaite.com/tv/msnbc-contributor-trumps-performance-will-live-in-infamy-as-much-as-pearl-harbor-or-kristallnacht/
In many ways Trump is very efficiently but uncomfortably (for his opponents) drilling to the heart of the matter - be it Brexit, uncontrolled migration to EU, NATO, trade imbalance, Sweden etc. There's a succinct description of his method:
Identify a big goal (tax cuts, balanced trade, the wall, etc.).
Identify your leverage points versus anyone who stands in your way (elections, tariffs, jobs, etc.).
Announce some extreme threat against your opponent that uses your leverage.
If the opponent backs down, mitigate the threat, declare victory and go home with a win.
If the opponent fires back, double down. If Trump declares tariffs on $50 billion of good from China,and China shoots back with tariffs on $50 billion of goods from the U.S., Trump doubles down with tariffs on $100 billion of goods, etc. Trump will keep escalating until he wins.
Eventually, the escalation process can lead to negotiations with at least the perception of a victory for Trump (North Korea) — even if the victory is more visual than real.
No one else in politics thinks this way. Politicians and insiders tend to try to avoid confrontation, avoid escalation, compromise from the beginning and finesse their way through any policy process. He's not a career politician and does not feed off "donations" like e.g., Clintons did with their Foundation. This method seems to be difficult to reconcile and hence, the Trump Derangement Symptom ensues. But it's exhausting to follow the news, the amount of raw bile they're pouring on anything Trump says or does (or doesn't say/do) is just plain astonishing.
