Why let drink decide?

The (UK) Government's latest waste of money, is a campaign to 'inform' children and their parents of the evils of alcohol on kids. Of course they aren't scaremongering are they?

The effects of alcohol on young people are not the same as they are on adults.  While alcohol misuse can present health risks and cause careless behaviour in all age groups, it is even more dangerous for young people.

Because there's a problem, and something must be done for the children:
