You know how those in the butcher's profession having been whining at us for a while now about how much we eat, smoke and drink?
Scarcely a day goes by when a doctor isn't haranguing us in the media about our lives, and demanding that Nanny takes some action to curtail our personal freedoms.
Well, it seems that there has been a little bit of hypocrisy going on, the butcher's profession (which has more than its fair share of drunks and drug addicts) in fact has been asking for the licence on one of its own bars to be extended into the wee small hours.
The British Medical Association has applied for an extension to the drinks licence at its headquarters, BMA House Tavistock Square in Camden.
The BMA wants the bar to stay open until 1AM.
Now, the funny thing is, only last week the BMA was berating Nanny for failing to tackle binge drinking and the evils of extended opening hours.
From the horse doctor's mouth:
"There is strong evidence that increased opening hours are associated with increased alcohol consumption and alcohol-related problems."
The butcher's profession should remember that its role in life is to heal, not to act as social engineers.
