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!
Visit The Orifice of Government Commerce and buy a collector's item.
Visit The Joy of Lard and indulge your lard fantasies.
Show your contempt for Nanny by buying a T shirt or thong from Nanny's Store.
