I see another large turd has floated to the top of the cesspool.
We are all supposed to tug the forelock because he has a "professor" tacked onto his name?
How come this erudite and supposedly educated twonk then spouts shit such as
A recent Glasgow study showed the risk of dying from cirrhosis due to alcohol was directly related to the number of off-licences in an area, he said.
“So if there are a lot of off-licences – off-licence supermarkets and off-licences – that is associated with increased risk of death from liver failure.”
So according to this so called "expert", the availability of off-licences causes liver disease? What fucking planet is he from? Does it not occur to him that the number of outlets reflects the demand for alcohol, and does not reflect the cause? By this idiots logic, if they opened a load of off-licences in the village here, we would immediately be forced into alcoholism and rampant liver failure. My four year old grandson would easily see the fallacy in his argument.
I hope you notice that this cunt [and his royal “we”] is already calling for restrictions on advertising and labelling of alcohol products? Plain packs for alcohol, here we come.
He claims that “drinking alcohol is of no benefit to anyone in terms of health”. This sentence alone displays the grey, dull, miserable world of the Puritan. He overlooks such trivial matters as relaxation and enjoyment. Everything has to be about health.
OK, I admit there is a problem with drink. Some kids go out, get hammered and cause problems. But hundreds of Antonias invite their friends around for a bottle of Chablis and thousands of Pats go and have a few pints and no one is the wiser or the poorer. The problem drinkers are a tiny minority compared to the overall drinking population, but of course the shithead professor wants to penalise everyone.
I would suggest my own little solution to this problem. It's simple and would only affect those who overindulge.
Why not create a web site? Fill it with photographs of kids who have had way too much. Pictures of them lying in their own puke and piss. Videos of them being complete arseholes. The kicker is that they would be named and their full addresses given. Do they really want their parents / neighbours / friends / employer to see them drenched in their own vomit and lying in a gutter? Photos can be taken at random and a selection posted each day.
I reckon that would be a killer web site?
