Fake Charity Alcohol Concern Cymru who are funded by the Welsh Assembly Government to the tune of £250,000 (Source Freedom of Information Act request) have comeout supporting a study paid for us by the taxpayer, via the Welsh Assembly Government, saying that 4 out of 10 Welsh men and 2 1/2 out of 10 Welsh women drink to much every day. No that was not a typo the study does say that. Hardly unusual coming out with fake statistics such as that, the Nanny State and their cronies love figures and meaningless numbers such as 'units' of alcohol.
Those limits were really plucked out of the air. They were not based on any firm evidence at all. It was a sort of intelligent guess by a committee,” said. Richard Smith, a member of the Royal College of Physicians and a former Editor of the British Medical Journal who sat on the committee who came up with the idea of units. (Source: Times)
Andrew Misell, Nanny State Apologist and policy officer for Alcohol Concern Cymru, said: “A lot of people would consider three pints of beer to be a fairly normal night out, but that is eight or nine units, which is well over the limit.”
Your limit. Not Mine. Not anyone else's. Stop trying to tell me what to do with my life and crawl back under the rock you were spawned from.
Mr Misell said with “alcohol-related harm” – the damage caused by violence, accidents and health problems – costing Wales £1bn a year, a priority for the UK Government after the General Election must be to introduce a minimum alcohol pricing of 50p per unit.
Yes they must mustn't they. Listen Misell you authoritarian little bastard. Why don't you do the world a favour and stop telling us the public and the Governmnent what we all must do? If you want your New World order then stand for Parliament under your Neo-Prohibitionist Bannerand see how many votes you win. In the meantime you can piss off.
Between 1980 and 2008, the price of alcohol increased by 283.3%. After considering inflation (at 21.3%), alcohol prices increased by 19.3% over the period.
That's a fact from the Office of National Statistics.
Right I'm off for a few beers!
