A Symptom of a Greater Malaise
Government Crackdown On 
Binge-Drinking Makes Alcohol 
More Widely Available
To the House of Lords, where extreme measures are under debate 
aimed at tackling the culture of binge drinking that continues to 
enshroud the British Isles in a boozy fog. This new approach has 
been put forward by Gordon Brown’s Labour party and contains a host of measures, some innovative and some
apparently pulled from their collective bottom at random, to replace those implemented last year which entirely
failed to work.

“In summary, the ruling party are trying a bit of reverse psychology on the nation’s pissheads,” Left-leaning
Spokeslord Allen Turdy told assembled press representatives over sherry during a break in session. “Last
time Her Majesty’s government totally bottled it, if you’ll pardon the pun, and gave up on the 50p a unit rule
that might have led to a plunge in support. After all, about five million alcoholics live in this country, and
most of them have the vote. Now we’re looking at taking a different tack, trying to remove the mystique
by placing drink on sale everywhere and encouraging young kids to try it as soon as they can. That way,
not only is the taboo destroyed, but the treasury gets oodles of extra cash through taxation. They could
really do with that.”

One aspect of this scheme involves placing whisky, beer and some of the classier ciders directly onto the 
racks at Boots, Poundland (right) and Ikea, thereby exploiting the general public’s impulse buying 
tendency, along with the need experienced by most males to get their heads up while out shopping. 
Additionally, ID will no longer be required to purchase Mad Dog 20-20 and alcopops, while in an effort to 
save the Great British Public House from extinction, under 18s will be allowed to drink within hostelries. 
Experts predict teens will be encouraged to make their way into local pubs courtesy 
of gaudy promotions and staff beckoning at them enthusiastically. Once through the 
doors, so the theory goes, pubescents will quickly realise there's nothing mysterious or exciting about sitting in
a darkened corner, drinking watered-down lager while burly men play darts or watch Wolves take on Burnley.

These proposals will also specify that children under eleven must be accompanied by a parent in bars or pubs,
whereupon they will subsequently be required by law to purchase bar snacks such as ‘Mr. Porky’ pork
scratchings alongside their drinks, both for aesthetic reasons and “in order to soak up the booze”.

“This is just another case of grasping at straws from a discredited party and a limp-duck Prime Minister.” 
Opposition MP Horatio Gurn told BBC News 24 as details of the proposals filtered out. “They’ve tried 
everything from changing the licensing act to facilitating 24-hour alcohol consumption, all in the hope it 
would somehow solve the problem. Remember that scary ad campaign with the talking bladder that 
ruptured after a night on the sauce? Or the big fanfare around cutting Happy Hour to fifteen minutes? 
None of it did any good, people just drank faster. And what was all that nonsense about bringing in a 
‘cognitive behavioural approach’ and ‘motivational interviewing’ to help alcoholics? Labour flew alleged 
experts in at taxpayer expense to teach binge drinkers how to limit themselves to a few glasses of wine with their dinner. Well, that was the final insult. I’ve seen the footage and none of it did any good. Those Continentals ended up completely shitfaced.”

“Things will be very different when we Conservatives have power.” Mr. Gurn (left) went on. “We’re not beholden to
the powerful drinks industry. I couldn’t care less if I contribute to the downfall of that recession-hit trade. The
Tories will up the price of Special Brew, increase police powers to beat up the intoxicated, and imprison anyone
who participates in drinking games of any kind, even if it’s in their own home. Particularly ‘Fuzzy Duck’, I hate
that one. Maybe then I’ll be able to get an ambulance for my elderly mother on a Saturday night when she has a
funny turn. If an illegal drug were causing this devastation we’d be up in arms, and probably under a state of

Horatio Gurn was later forced to retract this statement by Conservative party leader ‘Diddy’ David Cameron, the latter saying: “We have no plans to do any of that shit.”

Britain now has the highest rate of stupid drunkenness in Europe, with most youngsters listing binge 
drinking as one of their top hobbies, alongside social networks and tombstoning. The estimated cost to 
the NHS currently stands at £2.7 billion a year from a million admissions to A&E and five hundred deaths 
on the roads. Our current definition of a ‘binge’ is five or more alcoholic drinks for a man, or four in relation 
to members of the lady sex, and much of this is consumed at a pace that would make a teetotaller’s eyes 
water. Over time this pattern leads to cirrhosis of the liver, dementia, heat disease, pancreatitis, mental 
psychosis and death; either by poisoning, choking on your own vomit, or falling off a wall while dancing in 
a silly manner. Thanks to the expense of treating sufferers while clearing gallons of sick
and piss off the nation’s streets, a 2009 survey listed binge drinkers as the number two
scourge of British society, after MPs.

But Gordon Brown has convinced himself reverse psychology is the way to resolve this
issue, probably since bullying people into abstention has entirely failed. The Prime Minister
will shortly give a statement to the House of Commons where, in an affectedly thick
Scottish brogue, he will call those who disagree with his plans “cunts” and deride anyone
who doesn’t come out and get smashed immediately as a “killjoy” or “backdoor trader”.
Many insiders believe this overture to be a stroke of genius, since the promise of an
evening getting leathered in Gordon’s company is enough to 
turn many off alcohol for life.

Home Defence attempted to gauge the popularity of these measures at our local pub, telling worse for 
wear individuals about government-funded drinks promotions, and how Brown hopes to end the tutting 
that surrounds the habit of going for an all-day session. One man standing by the fruit machine 
“Thass brilliant, s’about time the guv-ment did something for blokes like me. I’d vote for them if I 
weren’t so pissed all the time. Mine’s a Baileys if you’re offering.” 

An empowered post-feminist celebrates the good news,
Horatio Gurn M.P.
That's going to be quite a hangover! lol!
A popular drinking game the Daily Mail has branded "evil".
