Politicians are pretty fucking awful; journos aren't much better. But what the fucking hell is it about doctors that makes them so bastard totalitarian?
People should be fined £100 for being drunk in public, even if they do not cause a nuisance, a leading medic says.
Plastic surgeon Peter Mahaffey told the British Medical Journal police should carry breathalysers and fine those three times over the drink-drive limit.
He said by imposing fines the message would soon get across that binge-drinking was not acceptable.
To whom is it unacceptable? To you? You want to rule people's lives according to your personal morals? That, sunshine, is what we call a dictatorship. And, as I have said before, we all know where that ends up.
Yes, people get hurt and do stupid things whilst they are drunk. But, as long as I harm nobody but myself, it is absolutely no fucking business of yours what state I'm in, OK?
I shall quote Bill Hicks, once again:
"What business is it of yours what I do, read, buy, see, say, think, who I fuck, what I take into my body—as long as I do not harm another human being on this planet?"
Now listen up, shitface: you are no better than me and you have absolutely no right—no right at all—to tell me how much I should drink, in what timeframe I should drink it and what state I should be in, as long as I am harming or disturbing no one else. You think about that, Peter Mahaffey, and you shut your fucking face—you and all your illiberal doctor buddies.
Shut. The. Fuck. Up.
