The fun police are right into the alcohol attack today:

BANS on advertising, health warnings on bottles and higher liquor taxes should be considered by the Federal Government to combat alcohol problems in Australia, a new poll reveals.

The Foundation for Alcohol Research and Education (FARE) released a Galaxy poll yesterday to showcase alcohol attitudes and behaviour in Australia. The poll first asked federal voting intentions and then asked them different questions about alcohol.

According to the poll, a majority of voters from each of the parties believed alcohol was a problem in Australia.

SLASHING our alcohol intake by five drinks a week could save the nation a staggering 54,000 days in lost household duties each year.

Alcohol related illnesses - from hangovers to serious health problems such as broken limbs, burns and assault injuries - were not just costing us in sick days, but they were also affecting our domestic life, a Deakin University study found.

If people cut back by 3.4 litres a year it could save the health sector $789 million, $427 million in workplace productivity and $21 million in domestic duties.

...they put a value on the cost of getting someone to perform household duties such as cleaning when people were too ill to do it themselves.

We need a revolution to get rid of all these do gooders who seem to think they know better than everyone else as to how we should live our lives. :angry:
