Father Ted- Father Jack Gives Up Alcohol

Last week I observed that Tesco were playing the "minimum price of alcohol" game, and warned that National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) were sniffing around too.
Well, as expected, this week NICE have come out fully in favour of a minimum price of alcohol, claiming that it will reduce "problem/binge" drinking.
To my understanding of what Nanny claims to be "binge" drinking, this occurs when people are out and about in pubs and bars. Setting a minimum price will not affect these places, all it will do is push up the price of booze in supermarkets and off licences.
NICE also want more advice pushed down our throats about the dangers of booze.
The BBC, for good measure, interviewed some hapless/hopeless female this morning who had walked on some broken glass when pissed.
She claimed that had she been given more "advice" about the dangers of booze, then the accident might not have happened.
For fark's sake!
When you drink 20 pints, or the equivalent, you know full well that you are pissed. In the event you walk on broken glass, or fall flat on your face you have no one to blame but yourself.
How stupid and irresponsible are people these days?
When I am pissed I immediately summon my sedan chair to convey me from bar to bar.
Does NICE really think that people with this level of "intelligence" will ever heed more advice (from which we are already drowning)?
