Beer to be watered down

Posted: February 8, 2012 in General, Law & Disorder

Here’s some more load of old cobblers spouted from a Government Minister’s ‘north and south’ (mouth).

Anne Milton, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Public Health, has made clear that the Coalition wanted to see a ‘significant’ reduction in the number of units in beer, wines and spirits across the drinks market.

She says alcoholic drinks in Britain could be watered down under Government plans to deal with binge drinking.

Below is a picture of Anne Milton but it has been mixed up with one of Ronnie Wood and I can’t remember who’s who.

She warned that the Government was ‘deadly serious’ about slashing the numbers of deaths in Britain caused by alcohol.

But hold up, binge drinkers keep drinking until they are legless so they can fall out of nightclubs onto the pavement and be ‘moby dick’ (sick) everywhere. If alcohol is watered down they will drink more volume of watered down alcohol to get the same effect. The human body does have the equipment to dispose of liquid to enable more to be taken on-board.

Mind you there is a Plan B when Plan A doesn’t work, as it surely won’t, under consideration is the introduction of higher taxation for stronger alcoholic drinks. I knew there would be some plan to relieve Joe Soap public of even more money.

Speaking during a Westminster Hall debate, she told MPs that the Government wanted to “remove a significant number of units of alcohol from the UK market through changes in how alcohol is produced and sold”. “Quality above quantity is something we’re aiming to do. We can’t turn this problem around overnight but we’re deadly serious about a deadly problem.”

Hasn’t it occurred to them that cutting down drinking hours would have a better effect with a reduction in late night crime as a by-product.

From a gormless Minister to a gormless wannabe insurance fraudster

IlieA woman who claimed thieves had stolen her 52-inch television was caught out when police measured her window and discovered that the TV would not have gone through it.

The television, which the woman said cost £1,200, was found hidden under her bed at her home in Paignton, Devon after the police had obtained a search warrant.

The woman, who is in her forties, was fined £80 for wasting police time but was not charged with perverting the course of justice.
