Friday, July 13, 2012


mmmmm lets see, I as a responsible adult, took my eldest son into a pub. He was 15 at the time, I told him my thoughts on alcohol, i explained the dangers, the pit falls etc!

He drank 2 pints of best bitter, (John Smiths) which I paid for, he left with me and enjoyed the experience.

I taught him a respect for alcohol, how to behave and also that I thought he was mature enough to embibe alcohol!

My choice, as his father, not government dictat, he's turned out fine he's not an alky, works missis, kids etc!!

Laws only exist for the idiots, after all how many MP's stole from the taxpayer via expenses????
