Support The Drinkers' Alliance
As BOM readers may recall, last year the Major and Tyler established a campaign against Nanny's plan to stop the responsible folk of Guildford enjoying the odd noggin or two. They objected most strongly to Nanny's outrageous statistical fiddling aimed at proving Guildfordians are dangerous social miscreants who spend all day pickled in Albanian claret. They railed against the threat of even higher booze taxes, and fresh restrictions on responsible drinkers.
Well, they are not alone. All over the country, drinkers are similarly incensed. And now they're coming together under a new campaigning banner - the Drinkers' Alliance.
Their excellent website is here, and they are promising to run a highly active campaign. Last week they launched some great ads (appearing on selected blogs - including BOM) pointing out that while our Westminster politicos want to tax us to abstention, in the confines of their own Palace they themselves knock back prodigious quantities of booze subsidised by us effin' taxpayers.
The Major and Tyler have already signed up, and may we urge you all to do the same (here).
Nanny needs reminding how the master-servant relationship works.
