Nanny's legions of busybodies, snoops and "do as I say" advisers are unleashing howls of anguish over the fact that some supermarkets are selling beer and lager at a cheaper price than water.
Tesco, Sainsbury's and Asda now offer lager at just 22p a can; that's less per litre than their own-brand-mineral water and cola.
You can get oiled for a mere £1!
There's value for you.
Needless to say, the newly formed Alcohol Health Alliance (doubtless containing the same people who banned fags from our pubs) is up in arms about this.
You know what, for once I agree with Nanny.
Did you ever think that you would hear me ejaculate (can I say ejaculate?) such an utterance?
I too think that it is an utter, utter disgrace that booze is cheaper than water and cola.
It is high time that these supermarkets lowered the price of water and cola, so that it matches the price of the booze.
