They are out to make us angry again.
Acohol Abuse Will Kill 250,000 A Year Unless Governmnt Acts say Control Freak Doctors
by Ed Butt
As many as a quarter of a million people will die from alcohol abuse over the next two decades unless the Government takes the problem as seriously as it did smoking, health experts have warned.
Deaths from liver disease have doubled in Britain in recent years while other countries such as France have seen profound falls thanks in part to strict rules on marketing drink, a strongly-worded article in The Lancet claims.
Academics say that total deaths from the wider harms caused to society by alcohol.

Quarter of a million a year (a fantasy figure pulled out of thin air) or quarter of a million over two decades, 12,500 a year. Whoever wrote the press release on this is a tad lacking in basic numeracy. If you need an idea of how bogus and fraudulent these figures are justy think the estimated number of deaths from alcohol is around half the total number of deaths per year. So get this nuber the crooks and liars of the medical fraud industry must have ascribed every death from old age as being a direct reslt of that person's drinking no matter how moderate a drinker they were.
The point about scare stories like this is we know excessive drinking does us no good but with individuals having such widely different levels of alcohol tolerance who can say what is harmful. Also alcohol is not the only cause of liver disease so we can never point to a single factor as a cause. Scientists are fond of parroting 'correlation does not prove causation' when anyone quentions their sweeping assumptions and wild guesses. so one would hope they'd display a better understanding of cause and effect.
If there are several environmental factors known to cause a fatal condition it is unscientific to point that the one that will serve a political agenda to put blame on.
We will all die and should be free to choose how we live, even if those choices shorten life. Anyone of us could have our lives sniffed out at any time. For scientists to pretend that if we all comply with their diktat we can live forever is both dishonest and shows they lack the intelligence to understand the implications of eternity if they think anyone would want to love forever.
The enlightenment philosopher David Hume nailed it when he said on learning of his terminal illness, "Then I seek a speedy dissolution. It is better to die while in posession of one's faculties than endure a few more years of increasing decrepitude."
As we have predicted along with many libertarian bloggers, the control freak wing of the highly illiberal 'progressive liberalism' movement, that section of society we have dubbed populist authoritarians, having succeeded in demonising smoking, a habit 20% of the population indulge in are now setting out to do the same with drink.
Using their favourite techniques of cherry picked and misrepresaented statistics they are trying to instil fear and panic into an increasingly deaf public about the imminent apocalypse 'alcohol abuse' (to these pusillanimous puritans an occasional small sherry is binge drinking) is set to bring upon us.
Sir Richard Thompson, President of the Royal College of
Pedagogues Physicians, said: How many more people have to die from alcohol-related conditions, and how many more families devastated by the consequences before the Government takes the situation as seriously as it took the dangers of tobacco?
We already know from the international evidence that the main ways to reduce alcohol consumption are to increase the price and reduce the availability of alcohol, yet the government continues to discuss implementing marginal measures while ignoring this evidence.
What utter fucking bollocks this pompous quack is talking. We know that the French, Spanish, Germans, Portugese and Italians are all bigger drinkers than the British with the Czechs people of the slavic nations and Russians in a different leauge. People get one life, it is up to them how they live it. More and more the medical professions are showing themselves to be in the service of the New World Order whose social engineers would enslave us and whose scientists would turn us into unthinking automatons.
Do we ever see any fear and panic stories from The Royal College Of Quacks and Charlatans about how many people die from over prescribing of approved pharmeceutical drugs every year. I think not. Paracetamol is known to cause liver damage yet my doctor has been trying to bully me into taking the maximum dose every day for years despite the discomfort I experience being mostly manageable so I only need ocasional pain relief from medication.
We should say to this self serving physician, "Fuck the fucking fuck right off Dr. Fucking Thompson. It is not long ago the medical profession were suporting schemes of Big Pharma to put drugs such as cholesterol lowering statins and anti depressant drugs in drinking water to medicate the entire population whether they have a medical need for such drugs or not. Many of us are willing to fight to retain our right to decide for ourselves what poisons we put in our bodies."
Fortunately since the demise of the authoritarian Labour government we have heard no more of these plans. With the coalition's grip on power is so fragile public opinion can call them to heel a lot more effectively.
Scientists And Politicians Attack The Food We Love, But Is It Science Or Just Control Freakery
A sustained campaign of misinformation by politicians, scientists, bureaucrats and the media have tried to brand fat and salt as the twin demons of the modern diet. Both however are essential to our wellbeing. So what are the bureaucrats, government and science lobby up to. What is the politics of food fascism. Are they just behaving as control freaks must or are they softening us up for extra taxes and government regulation of our dinner plates and the food we eat.
Proud To Be PissedBoggart Blog has always been a staunch defender of drinkers rights.
Alcohol AwareThe government has launched one of those nanny state campaigns to raise public awareness of alcohol. This Boggart Blog in depth report finds the public don't need their awareness raising, they know all they need to know about every kind of booze and drug on the market and drink, smoke or snort what they like best...
Cardiff To Pioneer Drunk Friendly StreetsThe news that Welsh capital city Cardiff is to expreriment with making its streets drunk friendly gave us plenty to speculate about.
Drunk Friendly Streets - Why Not Driver Friendly RoadsNews that the Welsh capital city, Cardiff is to create drunk friendly streets to prevent rat arsed revellers hurting themselves as they stagger from pub to bus station full of drink and alcohol fuelled bonhomie prompted petrolhead fatsally to ask 'Why not driver friendly roads?
Every Day In Every Way Tyranny Creeps A Little CloserThe NHS has come up with a scheme to deny care to people whose behaviour has contributed to their ailments. Smokes lung problems will go untreated, alcoholics livers will remain enlarged and fat people's bad backs will get no sympathy or pain killeres. But how far will this health tyranny go. 'No, you can't have a midwife, you got yourself pregnant, deal with it. We've got paperwork to do?
Five A DayA recent survey on our understanding of a portion of fruit and veg shows that 25% of the surveyed adults thought orange squash counted as a portion of fruit. A can of Tango must count as two portions then. Add a portion of lemon meringue pie and you're almost there! Somehow we supect Nanny State's nagging about the health benefits of five a day ae falling on deaf ears
Before The Pubs CloseWith religions having such a downer on sex one might think they would be in favour of booze, I mean if you drink enough alcohol you are going to be too busy choking on your own vomit to bother about shagging. In spite of that religious leaders continue to promise hell and buggeration to people who like a bevvy...
A Career In Substance AbuseThere are some weird jobs advertised in the government and public sector but a full page in a newspaper recruitment supplement dedicated to careers in substance abuse deminded investigation. Did they mean you get paid for yelling at a lump of lard 'You're a horrible, greasy disgusting substance' or did they mean recreational use of substances such as alcohol, pot and speed? (drink, booze)
Childhood Drinking Put Us On The Slippery SlopeWill the odd sip of booze, wine or beer from the parents glass for young children or a small glass of watered wine or lemonade shandy for older ones lead to moral decrepitude, alcohol dependency, living in a carboard box and early death as a government survey claims or will children included in this adult activity develop a heathier attitude to drink
Murder: I Suspect The Drunken Elk In The Orchard With The ApplesStories of drunk animals, booze raddled badgers, sozzled squirrels and maunged moose reported at this time every year by Boggart Blog, are usually amusing. Now however, in keeping with the degeneration of society in general we must report a darker side to alcohol related animal behaviour problems. This story, from Sweden, will make even the fearless think twice about confronting the most docile of species .
Decadent Exam Results DayWhere do the television people find those wussy, goodie goodie A level students who come over Anthea Turner (oops, pardon) on a level results day. It just does not present a realistic picture the booze and sex lifestyle of modern youth. Here our cub reporter recounts his own exam results day of alcohol and drug abuse...well school's out forever.
We're All Going To Die, WTF?Another seasonal rebellion from Boggart Blog against the annual crop of killjoy health warnings from government nanny state departments. Avoid alcohol, cigarettes, recreational drugs, salt, saturated fats, tasty food, sex, anything that might put you at risk. Why should we give uip booze and ciggies we know alcohol and tobacco are not good for us, whose life is it anyway. And let's face it, we're all going to die so WTF?
