We hear it all the time - the stuff about alcohol being so cheap that the kiddies can buy gallons with their pocket money. So cheap that the nannying fussbuckets want a minimum price. So cheap that we have a "pandemic" of alcohol problems.
So explain this then?
Trading standards today warned the public that the manufacturers of illegal vodkas have “no consideration for human safety” following reports that a Bradford man nearly lost his sight after drinking the bogus booze.
OK, so the bloke's an idiot - but someone has gone to the time and trouble (well, not that much time or that much trouble - making alcohol is very easy) to make, bottle and distribute that dodgy vodka.
If legal vodka's so cheap why do this?
