Pissed Pensioners Courting Health Problems Says Report

A new report out today recommends pensioners should have a lower limit for alcohol consumption than younger people.

People over 65 should drink less – BBC News

Now this does not really affect me, I’m not sixty five for hundreds of years yet, well two years and eight weeks to be exact, but what really pisses me off is that these aresholes think I have reached this stage in my life without being able to make my own mind up when I’ve had enough.

When I’m lying in the gutter choking on my own vomit I am well aware that I should not have any more to drink, well only a couple of halves maybe or perhaps a whisky to help me sleep.

Old people are individuals and have their own individual lifestyle. And some are able to put away industrial quantities of booze as our tribute to the late Queen Mother, an inspirational Old Queen demonstrated.

One of my favourite bloggers, Dick Puddlecote, has in the past had much to say on this campaign to demonise drink. He will have much more to say in future no doubt (scroll way down the left column to Dick’s tags and find ‘drinking’.

    We could all eat nice little cakes with dope in, like Bill Clinton did at Oxford. Which is why he said he didn’t inhale it….

    Shit, I’m so bored.

  2. Dammit Ian, you beat me to it!

    I was going to talk about our dear old Mum, who is, most of the time, quite abstemious.
    However whenever anybody else is paying she’s there like a shot.
    Hubby has had to start buying two bottles of Port to tide us over the festive season when Mother comes to stay….
    One of my theories on the longevity of the war babies and the depression babies is that they will go on forever as they are all nicely pickled….

    We’d better watch out, after they’ve got rid of smoking, and drinking, the old girls’ll probably be told to keep no more than half a cat and the chaps will have to make do with a game of bowl.

      Yes, so long as their children, who have always had more money than sense, are prepared to pick up the tab. The disappearing trick Mum can do with a bottle of Cote de Beaune (my fave) would certainly fool Penn and Teller.

  3. Too many health nuts have too much time on their hands and far too great an inclination to boss others about. The are are similar types at the BBC giving these people far too much of the old ‘oxygen of publicity’.
