Do as I say and not as I do

I AM heartily sick and tired of the government and the media, constantly spewing forth anti-drink propaganda, as indeed are many other responsible adult voters.

However, it seems that David Cameron and the other ‘holier than thou’ crowd may have a point about the dangers of cut price alcohol fuelled violence.

Last week a middle-aged male allegedly head-butted a middle-aged male, whilst a third middle-aged male got punched as he tried to break things up.

For good measure, a window was smashed.

The police were called, and have detained the head-butter

This disgraceful behaviour, needless to say, took place in a bar where cheap booze was being sold.

Oh, but hang on a minute all, can you guess where the punch up took place? Yes, that’s right, the Strangers’ Bar in the House of Commons (you know, the place were MPs drink cut price alcohol subsidised by the taxpayer).

Can you guess who was involved in the melee? Yes, that’s right, politicians! (You know, the ones who preach do as I say, not as I do!).
