Editorial: Britain and Alcohol: Drink Problem

Freitag 4. September 2009 von htm

„Tucked away in yesterday’s OECD (Organization for Economic Co-Operation and Development) report on childhood was a dismal if unsurprising figure: British children get drunk, or claim to get drunk, far more often than their counterparts anywhere else in the developed world. A third of 13- to 15-year-olds in this country said they had been drunk at least twice; in France the proportion is well under a fifth. The report made other important observations — Britain spends above the OECD average on children, while not always achieving better results — but it is the drinking that caught the attention, an often-told story of damaged hopes that begins with cheap cider and ends in a lifelong addiction.“
