BBC skews booze news

State TV has a programme on alcoholism tonight. It's another of their low-brow Panorama offerings, no doubt entirely unconnected with Cameron's recent attack of the vapours on alcohol consumption. Almost exactly a year ago, State TV told us alcohol consumption is falling.

That supposed fall was only a brief downward blip which masked the underlying increase.

Oh hang on, that's global warmening.

MW - yes, the downward trend is still upwards according to the models.
