Cancer Research UK has suggested that cigarette-style health warnings should be placed on alcohol packaging.

Why not. It's too often marketed inappropriately, for instance showing people enjoying themselves, obviously during the first 'round' and not after the fifth or sixth.

The misery that alcohol has brought to this country for decades and the cost are beyond imagination.

Perhaps anyone articulating or promoting a socialist policy should be made to display a health warning, as socialist policies have killed far more than smoking or alcohol put together.
