Booze Matters - Advice To David Cameron

Booze Matters
I see that the media reports that David Cameron has said that he would look sympathetically at local initiatives to tackle "deep discounting" on booze (ie cheap booze offers).

Correct me if I am wrong, but do our "beloved" MPs not benefit from access to bars in the Houses of Parliament that are open all hours, that serve "deep discounted" booze courtesy of subsidies provided by the taxpayer?

Why are MPs allowed to buy "deep discounted" booze, but not the people who elect them?

MPs are not in a position of moral superiority to lecture us on what/how much we eat, drink, smoke or snort...PERIOD!

  1. Nanny needs to address the real issue which is the behaviour of a few, rather than punishing everyone......Unless the real object is to raise cash....Kerching.

    It is an offence to sell booze to minors, it is an offence to buy or attempt to buy booze by persons under eighteen, it is an offence to serve pissed people with more booze and it is also an offence to be drunk and disorderly......Assault, criminal damage and threatening behaviour are still crimes......If Nanny enforced these existing laws, there would be no need to punish everyone, its akin to a teacher keeping the whole class in at break because one paperhat talked in class......Come on Dozy Dave, get a grip!!!

    Hi-Viz; Just say NO!!!!!

  2. They can also have a fag with thier "deep discounted booze".

    They seem to think they are the only people responsible enough to make their own choices.

    "We are all in favour of Greater Manchester having a mimimum price for booze ... Merseyside Licensed Retailers Assn., St. Helens Branch"

    How long do you think it'll be a 'local initiative' if this happens?

    Booze-cruises on the Mersey Ferry? Customs checks on the M62? Bring it on!

    Seems it has always been a case of one rule for the governors and another for the governed.

  5. Today I am in a charitable mood, it doesn’t happen often.

    It seems to me that the ones that will benefit financially from removing discounted drinks promotions will be the owners of smaller pubs.

    Maybe this is the government’s effort to increase their profits, which have been decimated by the smoking ban. Maybe the government recognise that under present conditions the traditional pub's days are numbered.

    Garry, I feel you are only partially correct. The brewers started to kill the pub trade many years ago, when good publicans made some money the brewers immediately wanted a large chunk of the profits or put in a manager. The pubs started shrinking back then, helped of course by the drink driving laws and then by hiking prices and colluding in the smoking ban. Having brown nosed all that time they want payback now by asking Gum'mint to give them a clear field with no competition. By the way I see Camerloon has a taste for "organic single malt" given him of course.

    Aren't they allowed to smoke in the bars in the Houses of Parliament, too? Palaces are exempt from the smoking ban
