We then have another article in the print edition of the same newspaper that headlines a report 'Health police target evening tipple'. This report tells us 'More than seven million middle-class drinkers are putting their health at risk by enjoying evenings at home with a bottle of wine, statisticians said yesterday.' and includes the statistic that 'almost one in four middle-class people admitted drinking to this level at least once a week'
This report also mentions that the government have revised the 'safe limits', supposedly due to the increased strength of alcohol coupled with larger measures. More likely it is due to the government wishing to re-jig the results in a more favourable light so that they can reinforce their wish to 'control' drinkers - along with every other section of society!
To paraphrase another Scot, Robert Burns, is it any wonder that Man's inhumanity to manmakes countless thousands turn to drink.
