Pain is good
Elizabeth Farrelly enjoys the "good pain" of ever increasing electricity bills, so she'd no doubt be pleased with a WA parliamentary committee's recommendation that alcohol prices be bumped up to decrease irresponsible youth drinking. The committee's reasoning:
Government action in Australia to increase price has already proved important in controlling and reducing consumption in other sectors, such as tobacco products and the use of water and electricity.Next on the nanny state's agenda: weight control via a tax on calories. Pain, learn to enjoy it.
