One in seven kids takes a drink

The Hootsman reports that one in seven of our beloved children (won't somebody think of the children?) are drinking alcohol regularly.

“A young person receiving the average British pocket money of £5.89 can buy eight litres of cider containing almost 34 units of alcohol – more than enough alcohol to kill them. That’s why minimum pricing is so important.”

Here's a thought... How about enforcing the existing Licensing Act (Scotland) and throwing the book at those selling to underage folk - which is already illegal?

Ach, it'll never catch on. It's enough to drive you to drink...
