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 So its all based on an old study that is 4 years out of date and has no hard evidence of a direct link between a quick tipple and cancer.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.
