Conservative leader, David Cameron, came out yesterday opposing a proposal by Chief Medical Officer, Sir Liam Donaldson, to increase taxes on all forms of booze. “It seems to me that what we should do is what we suggested before the last Budget," Cameron opined, "which is to try to target the problem drinkers and the problem drinks."
He should know. Before Cameron became Tory leader he was a non-exec at bar operator Urbium. Its most famous (and potent) brew? Some cocktail (served in large jugs) which went under the name of the Pink Pussy.
