But that doesn't stop our favourite fakecharity's new chief exec, Eric Appleby, wading in with prohibitionist nonsense.
"Yet again, the figures for alcohol-related deaths show that the alcohol policies in place in England and Wales are just not having an impact in reducing alcohol harm.Eric if over 99.8% of the population is NOT dying through alcohol abuse do we really need minimum pricing to reduce alcohol harm? I'd suggest that, with such a high success rate, the alcohol policies we already have in place are working perfectly well.
In the new Alcohol Strategy, the government must ensure that services are always available for the early identification and support of problem drinkers. They must also take notice of the evidence and bring in minimum alcohol pricing as soon as possible."
What we need, Eric, is for busybody, nannying cunts, to find proper jobs so they don't have time to push their temperance bullshit in the media.
