Grey Town Thurs Mar 31:
Influential think tank the Coulsdon Institute of Economic and Environmental Affairs has published a report recommending that legislation should be introduced banning adults from drinking alcohol unless accompanied by children

The conclusion was drawn after a survey showing the fastest growing group of binge drinkers are affluent professionals aged 35 – 60 who like nothing better than to have a couple of pints on the way home from work and then a bottle or two of wine with dinner (and that’s just the women)

The survey also revealed that adults are more likely to drink moderately when accompanied by children, who tend to keep the adults in line

A spokesmen for the government said they welcomed the report and that ministers would study its contents as soon as they get back from the pub
