BMA: Forward the Nanny State!

Information on how many units of alcohol are contained in drinks should be clearly displayed in all pubs and restaurants, senior doctors said today.

The British Medical Association is calling for the alcohol content of beers, wines, spirits and alcopops to be displayed on signs and posters in bars, and on wine lists.

The current voluntary agreement between the Government and drinks industry to include unit information on cans and bottles does not go far enough, Dr Vivienne Nathanson, the BMA’s head of science and ethics, said.

This is the Dr Vivienne Nathanson who is a confirmed supporter of euthanasia-murder, by the way.

As I've said before, sticking a few labels on pint glasses, or bottles of wine, won't have any effect, one way or the other. Will people even look at such labels? I doubt it. All it is is another instance of the nanny state interfering in the lives of people and businesses, simply for the sake of interfering.
