Nanny state on booze


Hi,

The chief medical officer of the UK Tory government has cut recommended alcohol limits for men. This was 21 units per week and was reduced (earlier this year) to 14 units per week. Why? Other European countries are far more liberal, with recommendations in most countries ranging from 21 units to 31 units per week. Why do we get the nanny state?

A sinister development is the medical officer's recent remarks on the similarity between alcohol and smoking. She says, “This plan is a great start. This is a journey. Look at tobacco.” What journey is she talking about? Prohibition?

I don't know how other people feel, but I'm sick of the nanny state telling me what I can and cannot do with my own money.

Do you have a prediction for America?

Hi,

It seems we are in a position of impotence. But we still have our intellects and maybe the ability to predict something of the future, right or wrong.

My prediction is that: if Trump prevails as president for 4 or 8 years he will leave having made more money from public office than any person in the history of the world.

Do you have a prediction for the future of America?
