Teenagers Drink Alcohol....

....cos they're bored!


Fake Charity Drinkaware (link Mark Wadsworth) has just announced that according to a new report "teenagers drink because they're bored!" OMG... will this genius never end? Kids have always drunk. I went into pubs to have a drink when I was 13 (before the days of labour paranoia).. we didn't get blind drunk, we had a drink.. but as sensible people will tell you, the more you lecture and the more you say "you can't do that", the more kids will want to do it! Will they ever learn, not on your nelly!!!

The charity Drinkaware said nearly one in ten teenagers aged 16 and 17 drank alcohol at least once a week because they had nothing else to do. Once a week, wow, that is over the top!

They also expect the number of underage drinkers to soar during the summer holidays, which is when around 51% of youngsters reported being bored.

Also, if given £20 per week to spend, some 13% of those questioned said they would use the cash on alcohol rather than shopping, entertainment and transport.

Drinkaware's chief executive Chris Sorek said: "Drinking can increase the chances of either being the victim or a perpetrator of a crime and having unprotected sex leading to sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies. Chris Sorek is a fucking genius, I do hope we're paying him megabucks for this info!

"If young people are drinking they should eat something beforehand, space their alcoholic drinks with water or soft drinks, look after their mates and if they're out, plan how they're going to get home."

What did we do without these experts before Labour took over our lives?

Of course, if the government could put all that cash into stopping the sell off of school sports fields and STOP CLOSING youth clubs instead of FAKE CHARITIES, then less of this would happen!

But that would mean, they couldn't lecture the rest of us and they'd all be out of a job!

Fake Charities and Quango's - a byword for Labour and Socialism!


  1. Thanks for the link.

    I strongly suspect that teenagers drink alcohol for the same reason as anybody else, namely because it is enormously good fun. But that's just a hunch on my part.

  2. Are Drinkaware funded by the Department of the Bloody Obvious?
