More gin, vicar?

As Public Health Wales claims drinking spirits is bad for you, we rebut their frankly stupid study

 

On Tuesday, The Telegraph reported that a completely unscientific study by an organisation named Public Health Wales had found that spirits are more likely to “trigger bouts of depression and unexpected weeping.”

 

Said also to cause an increase in negative feelings and levels of aggression, spirits also are said to boost confidence and energy levels and make people “feel sexier.”

 

Whilst The Telegraph’s article about the study focused on the spirits category in general, today The Guardian moved the focus to gin specifically. In a feature titled: ‘Spirits down: proof that gin makes you sad,’ the paper mocked the survey and rightly pointed out: “Other things that make you sad include literally everything that has ever happened in the world over the past decade.”

 

They are right, but we’d go one stage further and suggest this: “Drink whatever makes you happy and if you can’t have one at eleven, have eleven at one.”

 

Cheers!

  2. What rot. I find gin makes me sing my lovelies. I generally opt for Bombay Sapphire but lately I have got myself into one called No 3 after reading about it here. A cheery cheers from me to you all this Thanksgiving.

    1. It is a favourite of mine (stolen from a letter to The Times some years back) and I also like: “Time is only for the middle classes.”

  3. Love all the comments. What utter tosh that liquor is bad for you. We concede that FAR too much liquor isn’t good for you, but in moderation it’s frankly essential.
