I love my wine and beer, but I drink responsibly, most don't, so no, even if I must go without. One thing people are not asking about is casino's. They used to be packed night and day. Imagine all the money gamblers are saving. Govt should seriously encourage saving, ban gambling. Most pensions go to casinos. Had we a culture of saving we wouldn't be desperate in these difficult times.Do you think the government should allow the sale of alcohol during the lockdown? Are you concerned that it may cause problems?
I call that brain washing , democracy out the window .Dismaying to see how many voters in our democracy buy into a consequentialist morality - the ends justify the means.
I cannot possibly go along with that. And never have, even when detained without trial in solitary confinement.
It's the moral code of tyrants, dictators and despots. I reject it utterly.
I am of the classical liberal school that says "I disagree profoundly with what you say, but will defend to death your right to say it". The same goes for actions like smoking and drinking.
