That cheap booze lie repeated by Don.

Repeat a lie often enough and it will become the new truth. I spotted this classic lie in the media.

Fake charity Chief Executive of Alcohol Concern Don Shenker said that the falling price of alcohol in recent decades had boosted the amount Britons drink. He said: "The attitude that has been created is that alcohol is an ordinary commodity. Now we can buy alcohol in supermarkets it's all over the place, it's not separated off any more."

Ah now there it is, the open lie, do check the sidebar and you will see that it has in fact risen in price and keeps on rising.

A certain German painter and decorator would be so proud of Don and his quango.

The truth as the Office of National Statistics shows, this is utter horse cock:
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.
So that's one lie debunked, just don't expect Don to tell you that, despite your taxes pay for his out and out lies.

  1. This is a hilarious and extremely valuable website. Don Shenker is manifestly a money-grabbing, self-promoting, mendacious cunt.
