It's used for insulating houses now.Possible, but booze is still one of the few things really significantly cheaper in the UK....and they're expensive compared with France.
Having seen the drunken violence in some UK streets, though, if I were Cammy I'd be putting the prices through the roof.
I am happy for the sheep farmers, though. Wonder why the price of wool is so high? After all, we're supposed to be planning for global warming?
