They’re at it again.
Our gubmint seem determined to virtue signal to the world that “we care about our citizens” and to be The World’s First country to do something. Great! Now the world is going to blame us for this, as they blame us for the fucking smoking ban.
I doubt if there’s a sinner alive who doesn’t know that alcohol can have its problems. Most will remember that time when they had far too much and spewed the contents of their stomach into the gutter [along with the mysterious diced carrots]? Then there’s the multitude of hangovers when the ceiling spins and promises are made to never touch the stuff again [until, of course, the next time]. For the unlucky few there is the humiliation of the breathalyzer and consequent court case. Yes, I think the world knows that alcohol must be accorded some respect.
But our gubmint wants to scream CANCER at every available opportunity so why not scream it when we are out with a pint with the Lads or having a quiet wine [or whiskey] at home? We must constantly think of the dangers at the very time we’re trying to relax. If they are so fucking worried about cancer why don’t they label everything that might possibly or even remotely cause cancer? There would be labels on everything including the air we breathe.
I suppose next it will be “plain packaging” and lurid photoshopped images of festering livers and diseased kidneys. Good old Tobacco Template.
I suppose one must look on the bright side.
Now we can check the alcohol content in order to get the best value for money? .
