Julian Le Grand is at it again:
Supermarkets should be banned from selling alcohol to combat Britain\’s binge-drinking culture, says a health adviser to the Government.
Professor Julian le Grand, the chairman of Health England, said customers should be made to make a conscious decision to buy drink by going into a different shop instead of being "lured" into buying alcohol during their weekly grocery shop.
He said alcohol had become "like adult candy", with customers seduced into buying cut-price drink on their way around the supermarket in the same way that sweets used to be placed near tills.
Prof le Grand said: "I am in favour of separate alcohol outlets. Certain states in the United States and certain provinces in Canada have separate stores. I would probably ban supermarkets from selling alcohol altogether."
We\’re all such children that we just don\’t know what it is that we\’re buying. What? You mean wine contains alcohol? Beer too? My word, I never knew that!
He also said there should be a "dramatic rise" in prices.
Yup, it\’s all too cheap for you grubby proles. How dare you do what you enjoy rather than what I tell you you should.
