New alcohol consumer organisation, Drinkers’ Voice, has revealed an exclusive poll which
highlights that 70% of the UK’s drinkers don’t listen to official alcohol guidelines. We would
like you to join us in supporting them in their fight against the anti-alcohol lobby!
Drinkers’ Voice is a brand new initiative which seeks to bring the public back into the debate on alcohol and health. You’ll know that for too long this debate has been dominated by the anti-alcohol lobby, which has sought to denormalise drinking and restrict people’s access to alcohol. As a result, we have seen the UK’s alcohol guidelines reduced last year without credible evidence to justify it. As the poll shows, this has widened the gap between government’s instruction and people who want to just enjoy a drink.
The grassroots organisation will have spokespeople in communities across the country –
normal people who are passionate about their right to enjoy a drink, and who want to speak up for everyone who does so in moderation. Through every media channel possible, they will speak up for normal responsible drinkers, celebrate the joys of alcohol and rebut the myths spread by those whose agenda is to restrict the availability of alcohol and increase its price, so that it becomes inaccessible.
We believe that is important that people understand the benefits of drinking alcohol as part of a healthy lifestyle. We want people to talk about enjoying a drink with friends enhances their wellbeing, and how scientific evidence shows that moderate drinking can help heart and cognitive health. You can be part of it.
This is an opportunity to build a mass movement which brings common sense into the
conversation on drinking. But it can’t be achieved without generosity from those who believe in this cause. For as little as £5, you can pledge your donation here.
