Booze Matters - Auntie Speaks Out

Oh dear, I see Nanny's current anti booze fetish shows no signs of abating.

In what one might almost suspect is a co-ordinated policy of propaganda being orchestrated by the government, various anti booze quangos, doctors and the media we are being subjected to a daily diet of anti booze propaganda (akin to the anti fat/obesity propaganda that is pumped out by the same bodies).

Tonight is no exception, Auntie (BBC1) will be screening a Panorama programme tonight at 20:30 authored by Alistair Campbell (no less) about "Britain's Hidden Alcoholics" (ie the middle classes).

Needless to say, if Britain's "alcoholics" are in fact the middle classes (as opposed to Nanny's normal target "the poor") then Nanny's plans to legislate for a minimum price of booze will not make the slightest difference; as the middle classes tend not to go round swilling discounted "Ace Lager" from a can.

As Campbell says:

"I think that our connection to alcohol is a deal that each of us has to make with ourselves."

  1. Yes Ken, thewre does indeed appear to be a multi agency attack on drinkers.
    When Mr Cameron came to power, he said that he was going to cut back on government advertising and for a while, he has done so however, it seems that he has now backtracked on that pledge because, our TV screens are full of childish cartoon based adverts telling us what to do and our commercial radio stations have atleast one message from Nanny (Dot Gov) on each ad break. It is rather putting me off Gold radio again just as it did before when they ran all these messages from Nanny.
    The messages all boil down to the same two things.....

    Eat/drink what we tell you to; its for your own good


    Do as you're told or we'll 'ave you.

    I wonder how much this advertising, taking into account all the costs of producing it, actually costs us and whether the cost of the advertising is greater than the extra costs the so called bad behaviour would cost us if we were left to our own devices.

    I wonder if it is a similar situation that we have in relation to the new false religion of climate change where, in my opinion, we would do better to spend the money on adapting to man made climate change, assuming that it exists which I don't, rather than taxing ourselves into oblivion and paying to prevent it.

    This government were voted into power solely to get the country out of the financial shit. All they have managed to do is point fingers and lay the blame elsewhere.

    I can’t ever remember them saying that they wanted to control every aspect of my life. Had they put that in their manifesto I doubt that they would have been successful.

    Why the fuck are they doing these things? Are vegetarian, non-smoking tea drinkers inclined to pay more tax?

    As for the NHS; they should spend our money on cleaning up their filthy hospitals and offering a basic standard of care and nutrition to the patients.

    A little old lady went to the grocery store to buy cat food.

    She picked up four cans and took them to the check out counter.

    The girl at the cash register said, "I'm sorry, but we cannot sell you cat food without proof that you have a cat.

    A lot of old people buy cat food to eat, and the management wants proof that you are buying the cat food for your cat."

    The little old lady went home, picked up her cat and brought it back to the store.

    They sold her the cat food.

    The next day, she tried to buy two cans of dog food.

    Again the cashier said "I'm sorry, but we cannot sell you dog food without proof that you have a dog.

    A lot of old people buy dog food to eat, but the management wants proof that you are buying the dog food for your dog."

    So she went home and brought in her dog.

    She then was able to buy the dog food.

    The next day she brought in a box with a hole in the lid.

    The little old lady asked the cashier to stick her finger in the hole.

    The cashier said, "No, you might have a snake in there."

    The little old lady assured her that there was nothing in the box that would harm her.

    So the cashier put her finger into the box and quickly pulled it out.

    She said to the little old lady, "That smells like shit."
    The little old lady said, "It is. I want to buy three rolls of toilet paper."
