The Sunis reporting that Dave went out for a night with Hull police and is considering trebling the tax on some drinks in order to curb boozing. Sounds like something straight out of the New Labour paternalistic playbook. He attacked the ‘unbelievably low prices of some alcohol’.
Hmmm. What happened to personal responsibility, that little concept
you spoke of just over a year ago. It wasn't all nanny state and dictating to people what they should drink then:
"David Cameron declared yesterday that some people who are poor, fat or addicted to alcohol or drugs have only themselves to blame.
He said that society had been too sensitive in failing to judge the behaviour of others as good or bad, right or wrong, and that it was time for him to speak out against “moral neutrality”."
“Of course, circumstances — where you are born, your neighbourhood, your school and the choices your parents make — have a huge impact. But social problems are often the consequence of the choices people make.”
