Sara Stewart, who conducted the survey as part of research for a book, said: ‘A lot of women saw large glasses of wine, that contain as much as a third of a bottle, as the equivalent of one unit.
‘Because they didn’t know what a unit was, many thought a glass of whatever size, was a unit.’
For people who cannot count their booze intake are just the people we want voting on how to spend 45% of everything, right?
And just for fun can we make this another example of the patriarchy? Of course we can, just as with not being able to park because they’ve been told that this is 6 inches. The reason that women can’t count their booze is because men have lied to them about the size of drinks in order to get them drunk and thus into their knickers.
See, it’s all the patriarchy!
