Shit spouting Don is back in the Daily Mirror

Another rent a quote from the fake charity head Don. Don who is the paid shrill of Alcohol Concern is pumping his rubbish into the Mirror.

Alcohol 'will kill 90,000 more over next 10 years' - Gosh really Don, another made up figure? 

The number of alcohol-related deaths has tripled in the past 25 years, shocking figures reveal. -Yet consumption overall has decreased, strange that Don?

And 90,800 people - the equivalent to a packed Wembley Stadium - could die over the next 10 years. - Ah now its could die, come on Don make your tiny tax payer funded mind up.

The Alcohol Concern survey found the number of alcohol-related deaths soared from 3,054 in 1984 to 8,999 in 2008. - Ah right blanket figures spun out of context, very good Don.

Chief executive Don Shenker said: "This is an unacceptably high death toll and the worst part is that all these deaths are avoidable.

"This rise also runs in parallel with the growing affordability of alcohol." - Yep keep pushing the prohibitionist message Don.

  1. Whereas of course, in reality, alcohol is (on average) more expensive than it used to be - see here. According to the Office of National Statistics:

    Between 1980 and 2008, the price of alcohol increased by 283.3%. After considering inflation (at 21.3%), alcohol prices increased by 19.3% over the period.
