Full of Christmas Cheer
“Alcohol has a ruinous effect on the foundations of adult life,” Professor Sir Liam Donaldson said. “We see the tyranny of alcohol on our towns and city centres and too often childhood is robbed of its clear-eyed innocence and replaced with the befuddled futility that comes with the consumption of dirt-cheap alcohol.”
Setting out his final report, which is to be the backbone of a public health campaign next year led by the Department for Children, Schools and Families, he said that parents supported his proposals for an “alcohol-free” childhood.
The report, the most comprehensive review of scientific evidence to date, was based on an extensive public consultation.
Bollocks, it is based on extensive consultation of fake charities and campaign groups. Any time they ask real parents they get told to get their noses out of our lives.
Parents should avoid exposing them to “alcohol-fuelled environments” or family events where drinking was the central activity.
Does that mean I can ban Cousin Gwen from bringing her bawling brats over on Christmas Day?
