Fcuk me what will this shower of shite we call a government dream up next? http://news.aol.co.uk/alcohol-limits-set-for-teenagers/article/20070922222809990002 For those that can't access the link "The Government is to issue its first set of guidelines on safe alcohol consumption for the under 18s. Children, Schools and Families Secretary Ed Balls said the guidance - to be unveiled at this week's Labour Party Conference in Bournemouth - would be directed at the parents of teenagers. The aim, he said in an interview with The Sunday Telegraph, would be to discourage excessive drinking in the family home. It will be accompanied by a new crackdown on shops and off licences which sell alcohol to under age youngsters. "Currently we don't have any guidance at all for parents on alcohol consumption and its impact on under 18s. That worries me," Mr Balls said. "When I was 16 or 17, I would have a small glass of wine at lunch on a Sunday or a shandy or a Babycham at Christmas. "That's fine - a lot of parents do that and that's not where the problem lies, it's where parents are allowing kids to consume substantial quantities of alcohol. "We need to help parents get the balance right and put behind us the excessive drinking culture." Concern about teenage drinking crystallised last month after the killing of father-of-three Garry Newlove after he approached a group of youths in the street in Warrington, Cheshire. Cheshire Chief Constable Peter Fahy publicly attacked parents who turned a blind eye to their children's drinking and he called for a ban on alcohol consumption in public places."
