The Dangers of Booze Adverts
The British Medical Association (BMA) recently called for all alcohol advertising, including sport and music sponsorship, to be banned in order to protect "young" people from taking advantage of cheap drinks promotions.
Why can't middle aged people take advantage of these promotions as well?
Anyhoo, the BMA wants a radical rethink of public health policy (another one?), including introducing prohibitions at pubs and bars on deals such as; happy hour, two-for-one purchases and "ladies' nights".
The BMA also want minimum prices for alcohol and higher booze taxes.
Nanny's chief medical officer, Sir Liam Donaldson, earlier this year called for a 50p minimum price for a unit of alcohol.
All very well and good, maybe.
However, I am less than inclined to take advice from a profession that, statistically, has a higher percentage of people (compared with the likes of the ordinary mortals in the street) who drink to "excess" (as per Nanny's own definition), who smoke, are overweight and are substance abusers.
I am most certainly not going to be told by MPs as to what I can/cannot eat or drink, given that MPs equate to the "butchers' profession" when it comes to being populated by obese, heavy drinking, smoking substance abusers (with various mental disorders).
