Oh dear Nanny really doesn't like leaving the issue of our drinking habits alone, even though it is nothing to do with her.
Professor Mark Bellis, spokesman for the UK Faculty of Public Health (FPH), recently got very excited about the possibility of using the same sort of "shock" images that are on fag packets (eg cancerous lungs etc) on bottles of beer, wine and spirits (eg a liver after years of alcohol abuse - foie gras anyone?).
Factoid: as per my book "Accountants Can Cook":
"When I do finally “pop my clogs” I would like to be made into a pate which would be served at my wake. That way my friends will be able to relive the culinary experiences of my life."Anyhoo, back to the topic in hand seemingly such images will stop people from drinking "excessively".
We are fed a daily diet of graphic images on the daily news bulletins and in films and dramas, all that seems to happen is that we become sensitised to them and the images have to be made ever more graphic in order to prompt a reaction.
There is of course a contradiction within this proposal (no surprises there then!). Namely that Nanny abhors fags and wishes us to stop smoking them completely, whereas she "graciously allows" us to drink three to four units of booze every hour (or is it day?).
Still, Nanny never worries about contradictions; rest assured that, if she could, she would ban booze and fags altogether!
