Parliament are trying to push through a minimum alcohol price.

Yes, but mostly it's given away as I understand it.

Which is a good way to avoid any inconvenience to themselves wrought by minimum pricing...

That explains everything, from George Brown to Eric Joyce. They are all wearing beer goggles.

Why are we accepting alcohol being supplied in our 'publicly' funded buildings? I worked for two years in a Cornish NHS warehouse supplying non medical stock to hospitals in West Cornwall. On the inventory was whiskey and wine; when I asked what this was for, I was told it was for meetings, leaving dos, etc. I looked at the usage and that worked out at just under £10,000 PA, and that was in the early 1990s and for a relatively small geographical area; rolled out over the UK it was £millions. The same situation exists in Local Authorities and other public bodies. It is OK for a generous boss of a private company to give lavish leaving parties etc; but not for publicly funded Councils and the like. Wake up Britain!
