I’m a champion. Apparently.

I received this heap of garbage in my E Mail this morning.

Dear Drink Wise online subscriber, (Ed: Never in a million years would I think of such a thing.)

2013 is set to be an important year setting the direction of alcohol policy nationally for many years to come.

As one of Drink Wise’s online subscribers and Alcohol Champions* we would like to hear some of your views through this very short online survey (no more than 2 minutes long!).

We look forward to your response.

Well I gave them my response to their short questionnaire. They really shouldn’t include a box marked “Other”. Here’s the first page of the survey.

Which aspects of alcohol policy interest you? (you can tick as many answers that apply)

Tackling underage alcohol sales

Preventing underage binge drinking

Stopping alcohol advertising before 9pm on TV

Stopping alcohol advertising in cinemas to under-18's

Curbing the low prices of alcohol in supermarkets

Support the introduction of a minimum unit price for alcohol

Support setting a 50 pence minimum unit price level for alcohol

Reducing the opening hours of licensed premises

Reducing the number of licensed premises

Other (please specify) Go on. Go mad (I did). You know it makes sense to prod these Nu puritans.

I’m off two top my glass up with at least half of my so called ration of units.

* First I’ve heard of it.

I don’t think that you should do that.
