Nanny State is on the warpath, admonishing finger wagging furiously, lips compressed into a thin line, she is launching another determined effort to make sure we are all too scared to think for ourselves or make our own choices, Nanny is now warning, with the usual threats of early and painful death is we disobey, that we should only have an alcoholic drink on alternate days. Nanny says government experts have advised her to issue this warning:
Drinkers should not consume alcohol on consecutive days to avoid endangering their health,
New advice will recommend a one day on, one day off rule, with the public urged to abstain on the day after they have had a drink.The new guidelines have been drawn up by Public Health England, the government quango charged with promoting healthy living.
Even drinkers who are not considered to be consuming alcohol at dangerous levels will be encouraged to abstain every other day, under a pilot project aimed at getting heavier high-risk drinkers to cut down.
In its Marketing Strategy for 2014-17, under the heading Promoting irregular drinking, the quango says daily drinking is a key contributor to increased risk of alcoholism, and alcohol-related diseases such as cancer, heart attacks and liver disease.
The government scientists who produced this latest example of scaremongering say that failure to comply with their diktat may result in regular drinkers being diagnosed with ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder). This is a mental illness for which any sign of eccentricity, non – conformity or individualism can be interpreted as a symptom.
Boggart Blog has a message for Nanny State and her ultra conformist advisers:
Fellow Manc. Noel Gallagher gives the standard northern response to Nanny State and her cohorts – is he displaying symptoms of ODD or just warning the busybodies to FUCK THE FUCKING FUCK OFF
Here at Boggart Blog we are happy to say we believe in moderation and will continue to drink every other say as we do now; today and every other day we fancy a drink that is.
