I was excited to read the headline “Portsmouth pubs asked to sponsor kids on alcohol course.” It consists of ten hours training with an exam to follow. At last, I thought, kids will be getting a proper education. No more RE or Woodwork for them.
I envisaged the future generation of drinkers learning the difference between Milds, Bitters, Porters and Stouts. Not to mention transgender-bending Mid-Atlantic Pale Ales. Sadly not. Apparently it’s an alcohol awareness scheme designed to teach youngsters the impact of alcohol on their health, career and social life.
All very worthy, but I prefer my idea.
