A few years ago, one would have guessed the former, but now? Who knows?
I have just returned from the Campaign for Real Ale's annual Great British Beer Festival in London, to which I was invited in order to see 'responsible drinking' being undertaken.CAMRA binge-drinkers had better get used to this sort of treatment from now on. Maybe, instead of rolling over, they should have fought harder to help keep the righteous's box shut when they had the chance.
This disgusting experience merely confirmed that making alcohol expensive is not any kind of answer.
It cost £10 for admission and another £3 to obtain a glass before a single drop could be sampled, yet I could see considerable numbers of people whose consumption had been such that they would not have been legally (and, in several cases, physically) capable of driving a motor vehicle.
Only complete prohibition can save the health and morality of our nation.
