Collins is a DIC

Yesterday, National reported:

For the first time in over twenty years, a government is acting to restrict rather than relax our drinking laws. We’re taking action but we can’t do it alone. Problem drinking is an issue for us all.

Judith Collins

I had long suspected that most National MPs have drinking problems. Thankfully Collins has finally come forward and cleared the air because admitting she and her colleges are alcoholics is the first step to recovery.

After a rather bad episode, she must be regretting her inebriated announcement that the government will let the booze barons regulate themselves. What was she thunking?

Government regulation to reduce harm from ready-to-drink alcopops is really a no brainer and I pity the person who has to clean up the mess made by such drunken decision making.

Hopefully one day they will come to their senses and we can have some sober law making surrounding the destructive alcohol industry. But then again, we will probably need a change in government first.
