Binge Drinking on the Rise in UK
Cheap Alcohol is a real threat to the stability of any modern day society and using alcohol as a consumer commodity to attract more customers should make Governments react to make it slightly more difficult for alcohol abusers to get their drug.
It is possible that the UK will react as they did with tobacco prices that have soared over the last 15 years and together with the strict “No Smoking” laws, smoking is no longer the number one killer in the UK. Making alcohol more expensive would also help to reduce deaths related to alcohol consumption, but in Politics things don’t just happen over night, although becoming an alcoholic does.
