Drink More Vodka

I see that Duncan Selbie, one of Nanny's chums from the head of Public Health England, has issued a dire warning that drinking a glass of wine after work does the same harm as drinking three shots of vodka.

Selbie claims that deaths from liver disease of working age people have increased by 500% since the 1970s because many arrive home, "pour a glass and have no idea how much they are drinking". 
MPs say that people are safer enjoying an alcoholic drink in their local pub as measures are controlled rather than buying large quantities of wine at "rock bottom prices" in supermarkets and drinking in a "non-sociable atmosphere away from people's communities".

That's a laugh, considering these hypocrites enjoy drinking taxpayers' subsidised booze in Westminster bars where they never have to get off their fat backsides to leave the building (unless they are off to a drug fuelled orgy in Dolphin Square).

Tracey Crouch MP, the former chair of the All Parliamentary Alcohol Misuse Group, is quoted by the Telegraph:
"The middle class professional is coming home of an evening and pouring themselves a glass of wine with dinner, and then possibly another after that, without realising that over the course of a week it can tot up to more than what is medically advised. 

I'm really pleased that Public Health England has raised this, because raising awareness of this is not about telling people they cannot drink, it is about getting people to understand the drinking habits they have, and it does become a habit, it becomes a habitual part of your evening rather than some sort of special occasion when people enjoy a glass of wine. 

People will see it is a very different thing pouring a glass of wine to pouring a three measure vodka, but this is why it's important to have calorific content on the labels - you wouldn't pour three shots of vodka but you also wouldn't sit down and eat six doughnuts either - but you tend to pour yourself a large measure of wine not a small glass."
MPs sit down all day boozing away in subsidised bars, please explain how that is better than someone who actually works coming home and pouring themselves a drink?

Anyhoo, the solution is easy; drink vodka instead of wine, or dilute your wine with vodka.

    I suspect Nanny wants people to drink in pubs because she'll get a bigger cut taxwise compared to supermarket booze.

    I think the most important question Nanny needs to ask herself is why do so many people feel it necessary to turn to drink?.....Could it be to escape the reality of living in Nanny's brave new world?

    Having a glass or two of wine after a day's work is not 'turning to drink' and I very much doubt that Tracey Crouch MP has a clue about what the average middle class professional does in the evenings.

    A glass of wine with dinner???????
    What fucking planet does she live on?

  3. Nanny is already forgetting that she has caused the prices in pubs to skyrocket so high, which is why the pubs have been abandoned.

    Loving the idea of "diluting" the wine with vodka. Hilarious!

    Dear Mr Frost

    This demonstrates the modern public servants' and politicians' main dilemma:

    Too much time too little to do.
