Now, I don't for one second dispute any of the facts and figures passed on from medical profs, or police re arrests etc, but why the hell are they insisiting that supermarkets are the culprits for 'binge' or 'underage' drinking?
I'm not defending them, but it's just not the case.

Supermarket bought alcohol tends to be more expensive than the more liberal deals offered by small local shops (I do know this, I shop in big stores and notice it first hand), which tend also usually to be the main source for underage drinkers to buy their juice (christ, Asda has a proof of age policyif you appear to be UNDER 25!).

And they show us a can of 22p lager as proof! Who the fuck buys that?
No 'yob' I've ever seen for sure.

Yes discuss alcohol, but do it properly and honestly please.

I mean, do we hike the price of choloclate up just coz some get rotund and burdensome to the NHS on it?

Do we increase the price of alcohol to the extent only the better off can afford it!

Do we? Eh? !!
