Booze Matters - No More Happy Hours

Booze Matters - No More Happy Hours
I see our "respected" political masters are getting worked up over booze issues again.

Nanny's chums in Parliament (the Home Affairs Select Committee) are calling for an end to happy hours and a minimum price at which booze can be sold in supermarkets, the theory being that we are drinking too much and causing Nanny's police a lot of bovver.

Nanny's chum, Chairman Keith Vaz said:

"We cannot have on one hand a world of alcohol promotions for profit that fuels surges of crime and disorder, and on the other the police diverting all their resources to cope with it."

Here's the thing folks, I might have more respect for the MP's who lecture us about our boozing habits were it not for the following:

1 MP's are generally unfit, overweight and prone to abuse a variety of substances (including booze).

2 MP's are able to purchase heavily subsidised booze (at our expense) in the Palace of Westminster's numerous bars and watering holes.

3 MP's are able to buy booze whenever they want in the Palace of Westminster, as the normal rules of licencing don't apply.

When our MP's subject themselves to the same privations, pricing structures and inconveniences that they wish to try to impose on us then I might have a little more respect for them when they attempt to lecture us about our drinking habits.

Until then, I humbly suggest that they shut the fark up!

  1. Nanny has definately got booze in her sights.....She will not rest until she has completely destroyed our pub industry.....Once she's banned eating, booze and fags, there will be no obstacle from us all being mindless drone workers whose only role in life is to provide Nanny with a tax cash cow....

    Nannys should confine it's worrying about adults and alcohol to the few who break the law....drunk driving, public nuisance/intoxication, being an arse in general, and leave the 95% on adult Brits who know when to say when alone. It's the continuing infanilization of grownups that breaks down the bootstrap mentality, leaving us at Nannys mercy.

    Well, smoking had become a minority occupation and the populace at large were quite happy to sit back and see draconian legislation enacted despite the steady, spontaneous decline in smoking rates. Your friends and colleagues stand in the cold and rain to indulge in a legal activity, frequently subjected to verbal abuse and bad manners and on occasion exposed to real risk of physical harm. Hey, that was OK you were a non-smoker, one of the good guys. Now those of us who like a glass of wine, beer or spirits face the same process. Legal restrictions, swingeing taxation, social denormalisation and demonisation. Drinkers kill innocent children by drunken driving, deprive families of decent food and accommodation etc. etc. Stop the drinkers, ban the drinkers, close the pubs, already struggling from the blanket smoking ban, close the clubs. Soda water and virtue for all or else. Can't happen? They have done it once while you stood back and said nothing. Now it is your turn. I hope you enjoy it.

    So obvious that Nanny was going to do this, eh? Yep, it's happening just the same as they did with smoking. They are scumbags, really, ain't they. Have a look at "The Daily Mash's" take on this....funny, but so true!!

  5. 70% of our law is made in another place in a foreign land. This means our mp's have a very much reduced workload. (This also explains why most of them also have a second job) There is a "law", I can't remember who's, that states that the "work expands to fill the time available".
    The trivia that originates from Westminster now proves this.
    There is also another saying that "One should not confuse movement with progress".
    This government is thrashing around looking for something to do.

    Would this be the same Keith Vaz, Labour MP (Leicester) and former Cabinet Minister, Keith Vaz - Investigated for fraud and corruption before quietly leaving his Europe Minister post with `health problems`. According to his former Secretary, Vaz does absolutely nothing in his constituency other than help local Pakistanis with their Immigration cases (which also helps to explain the `whites a minority` status of Leicester and the safe Labour seat of Mr Vaz)
