Plans are afoot in Britain for a ban on the major supermarkets here to do away with the ridiculously cheap beer and booze deals they currently offer. To be frank, this doesn't really affect me as I hardly drink any more, but alcohol abuse is a big problem in the UK especially amongst the young, whose idea of a nice time seems to be to drink as much strangely coloured and terribly sweet cheap drink as they can before they either pass out or get arrested. Call me old fashioned (or just old if you want, I'm used to it) but there's more to life than getting so off your face you can't remember what you did every weekend.
PS. As an example of what the supermarkets here are offering, you can buy 45 big cans of lager for £20 in Asda. Shocking. Why the fuck does anyone need 45 cans of lager?
