Supreme Court refuses to hear appeal on vending machine ban

Isn't it nice that the Supreme Court will avoid wasting court time by refusing to hear a manifestly unjust case, thus avoiding the clear obligation to vote against the government?

There is clearly an alternative option to a vending machine ban: mandating effective age-verification, and using equipment that allows only one sale each time a machine is activated following age verification. Yet the Supreme Court will not allow this case to be made.

I suspect it may be for the same kind of reason that the Scottish Parliament refused to allow a trial of radio-controlled vending machines – that it would put them behind in the tobacco control league tables. Juvenile or what?

The Justice system in the UK stinks of corruption. It might be a good idea to import some REAL judges from Holland.
