Booze Woosses

Booze Woosses
There seems to have been some sort of poll commissioned by Channel 4 (the company that serves up that daily shite known as Big Brother), in which 52% say only over-21s should be allowed to buy alcohol, compared to 45% who insist the limit should remain at 18.

Fine!

Raise the limit then; but also make sure that those who are under 21 are not allowed to vote, and are not sent to Iraq and Afghanistan to die.

Have people in this country totally lost the power of thought and reasoning?

    Yes.

    For example - PCSOs, especially 16 years old examples.

    Of course one might observe that the 'liberalisation' of the drinking culture seems to have had a parallel beneficial effect on exam results.

    Whereas the much younger children, who are not so inclined towards drinking en masse in most parts of the country, appear to have declining standards.

    Clearly the advent of booze into their young lives in the early teenage years dramatically improves their ability to pass exams in their mid-teens.

    There must be a PHD thesis in that hypothesis somewhere.

  2. Great site.
    At the rnd of the day we should not need to rely on nanny to look after us....Every parent should take care of their off springs and teach them how to behave. The British seem to have a hang up about alchol that must be cultural in origin as most other European countries don't have this same problem.
    People are no longer able to think for themselves as the interfering nanny has made thinking unnecessary as she pokes her nose further and further in to our lives.

  3. "not sent to iraqu to die" - Are they conscripts then?
    Linking all behaviour to either adult or not adult just doesn't work .
    You can have a baby at 13 but not drive a car etc.

  4. If they are considered adult enough to be trained to handle a gun, and adult enough to be sent to represent our country in a foreign battlefield; then they are adult enough to drink.

    Applying a blanket ban to all the population, because of the actions of the moronic minority is not the way to deal with this.

  5. Looking for societies which are evident paragons of alcohol related virtue what examples do we have of countries where the minimum legal age for drinking is 21?

    Ah yes, the USA.

  6. Go on - give prohibition a go.
    At the worst it would get the crims organised and they might sort out the yobs.
    Why are you all so desperate for drink anyway?
