Also a day when the BBC put up a picture of two fingers with a glass of wine as part of the discussion on the new report that 'guess what' - different types of drink affect our moods in different ways. The male finger was supposed to be happily merry and the female finger depressed as a result of drinking. I think anyone who drinks knows that booze affects moods so why have a study! It is a shame that the Drinkaware spokesperson they mentioned didn't have more to say on the subject, just another inane comment from a body that is supposed to be providing serious advice! It's why my own finger people don't have a glass of wine with them, and because of that fact they are both happy! No alcohol equals happiness, it's a fact!
Finally, in the latest budget the tax on booze stays the same - at least in England. I can understand the government worrying about pubs going out of business but what about the NHS having to cope with the results of all that excess drinking!
