Don plays the fear card. Drinking gives you cancer.

Well the quango head is on fine form in delivering his government message on how the demon booze will kill us all. Don who gets a stead pay check from HM Govt, the major funder of his quango has been in the Daily Express claiming we are all going to get cancer from having a quick half a shandy.

Alcohol Concern chief executive Don Shenker said it was time to introduce tobacco-style health warnings on alcohol.

Don old chap, its high time that my tax money was used NOT to fund you and to remind you that no one has voted you into any position of power. You are not an MP, elected by people by a quango head of a fake state funded charity; in short a parasite. 

“While alcoholic liver disease remains the number one killer linked to alcohol, more and more people are suffering from oral cancers — and record drinking levels have undeniably played a part.”

Really, an you have the evidence for that or just one study? Oh and drink levels have actually declined, so I shall clear that little lie up for starters.

The researchers compared cancer mortality rates across Europe between 1990 and 1994 and 2000 and 2004. So its all based on an old study that is 4 years out of date and has no hard evidence of a direct link between a quick tipple and cancer.

Nice to see that the "third sector" is being oh so responsible to the public, then again as they are paid for by the state I guess it's a case of who pays the piper.

More than 7,500 people are diagnosed with cancer of the oesophagus in Britain each year. So 60 million plus people, if Don has his way, will pay higher taxes on their drink, in order to protect 7,500 people who get cancer, based on an old study and with no hard evidence to back it up...

Oh another "study" pointed out that oral sex also increased the likelihood of throat cancer, so will Don be campaigning for warning signs on chaps penises? Naturally Don will be exempt from that as not many ladies will be willing to pleasure a talentless quango head.

Don Skenker spouts his drivel in The People.

Don turns up to deliver the right on message on the demon drink for HM Govt, in The People, Another 30 pieces of silver well earned there Don.

All cans and bottles of booze MUST carry health warnings by law from next year.

The drinks industry will be forced to give alerts on beer and spirits just like those on cigarette packs.

Ministers plan to get tough after the failure of a voluntary scheme first proposed in 2004 and only patchily implemented in 2008.

There is the problem, the scheme was supposed to be voluntary, however as the drinks industry did not choose to follow the puritanical line of New Labour and highly paid non job quango heads like Don, they have chosen to legislate instead.

And the usual lies are rolled on out to back up their measures:
Drink-related fatalities, such as those from liver disease and road accidents, have TREBLED over the last 25 years. And alcohol abuse in the UK is among the highest in Europe.
Depends on how you read the figures, play with stats enough and you can produce any result you like. Who knows they might be faking global warming data next.
Don Shenker of Alcohol Concern quango, funded by your tax money said: "The death toll is unacceptably high. And the worst part is that all of these deaths are avoidable."
Sadly paying for Don spouting his utter shit in the press is not avoidable.

Don Shenker - Fake charity shitspouter. In the local papers.

Yet more shit from state funded jobsworth and recopied by lazy hacks on some local rag.(This is the West Country) A REGIONAL breakdown of the TellUs3 survey, obtained by national charity Alcohol Concern(that's the state funded charity that gets its money from your taxes and pushes Labour's message of higher taxes), shows that children and young people in the South West report rates of drunkenness above the national average.
 Nearly 11% of young people aged between eight and 16 said that they had been drunk twice or more in the past four weeks, the national average being 10%.

A total of 6.2% had been drunk three or more times in the past month.
The survey, conducted by schools inspector Ofsted, also revealed that less than a fifth of young people in the region had never had an alcoholic drink.
The charity is calling for further action on alcohol pricing, marketing and on support for parents, after research pointed to the central role parents can play in tackling young people’s drinking. (Maybe if the law was enforced better, there would be no need for controls, or the fake charity quango that keeps Don in a well paid job!)
Earlier this year, a comprehensive survey of 15 and 16 year olds showed the effect of their parents’ attitudes on their drinking behaviour.
It found that 80% of pupils who felt their parents would disapprove of their drinking had never drunk alcohol, compared to 24% of those who thought their parents approved within limits and 16% of those whose parents let them drink as much as they liked.
A poll carried out by YouGov for Alcohol Concern pointed to some of the likely reasons for young people’s drinking, with 68% of people living in the South West believing that cheap alcohol means that young people are more likely to drink and 82% believing that some alcohol products are marketed to appeal to underage drinkers.
Alcohol Concern chief executive Don Shenker said: "Sadly, children and teens in the South West are getting drunk far more often than the national average.
“However, the good news is that parents’ attitudes to their children’s drinking can indeed make a difference to their behaviour.
"Setting an example by drinking responsibly in the home and being honest about the health risks of alcohol are essential.
“This must be combined with tough action on cheap drinks and those marketed towards underage drinkers if we’re to see young people drinking less in future." - Said Don, the self appointed chap who has never been elected by anyone to a political position and who like many a public sector parasite, believes he knows what is best for you; whilst using your money to lecture you.

Like a zit on a teens face the puss of Don keeps coming on back.

Uber hoon Don can be seen spouting his utter shit in The Sun.

Don Shenker, chief executive of Alcohol Concern(the state funded charity that you pay for), said: "It is simply irresponsible to encourage young people to drink far more than the recommended daily limits on a night out."

That would be the limits that have NO BASIS in science what so ever. See sidebar for more info on that.

Chris Sorek, chief executive of Drinkaware(another state funded charity that you pay for), said: "Pub crawls often encourage drinking to get drunk but this kind of activity can result in sexual assault, having a serious accident or being a victim of crime.

Gosh that's the best they can do, Chris says behave or you might be a victim of crime?!
