Let the Villagers decide.....

The Community Council in Falkland, Fife, wants the Scottish Parliament to approve an alcohol free zone in the viallge.

I think that all the residents of Falkland should be given the opportunity to comment on whether or not the village should be an alcohol free zone.

UKIP policy is to have a local referendum on such issues - it could very easily be organised by the Community Council by simple having a copy of the electoral register to hand, crossing out the names of those appearing to cast a vote, and asking them to fill in a simple slip.

There are always strong views on both sides of this sort of matter and unless there is an over-riding issue, local views should swing the day. A good turnout will soon let all vested interest know the real common view.
