Millions of middle-class drinkers putting health at risk with evening tipple
Norman Lamb, the Liberal Democrats' spokesman on health, said: "These statistics lift the lid on the very serious scale of middle-class alcohol consumption, and the potential health risks that this involves.
"While attention has rightly been on the massive problem of young people binge-drinking, a hidden epidemic among the middle classes has gone unnoticed.
"The Government has continued to massively under-fund alcohol treatment services, meaning this problem has been allowed to continue unabated."
As a Times article reported a couple of years ago, people are not risking their health by drinking more than the government limits—rather the opposite in fact.
Subsequent studies found evidence which suggested that the safety limits should be raised, but they were ignored by a succession of health ministers.
One found that men drinking between 21 and 30 units of alcohol a week had the lowest mortality rate in Britain. Another concluded that a man would have to drink 63 units a week, or a bottle of wine a day, to face the same risk of death as a teetotaller.
Given this fact, Norman Lamb is a patronising cunt who should fuck off and die. I mean, how overwrought is the idea that there is "a hidden epidemic among the middle classes"? And I personally object to the idea that—because I drink more than the entirely arbitrary, made-up "limits" for alcohol consumption—that I should be sent to an "alcohol treatment" centre.
Seriously, what the fuck, Norman? Do you think that people should be sent to alcohol treatment centres because they like a drink in the evening? What's next, you cunt—sending people to sexual addiction centres because they are having more sex than you? Or why not go the whole hog and send people off to the gulags because they have called you a cunt?
For fuck's sake, Norman, you shitting fuck-basket, why don't you fuck off and die?
