Nanny-State Govt. may now consider limiting alcohol consumption for those over 65: Lower health care costs, and "better health" for the older population

THIS IS NOT A JOKE: THIS IS NOT A SPOOF POST! FASCIST ALCOHOL-HATING BITCH FROM HELL REALLY SUGGESTS GOING BACK TO PROHIBITION

From Eric Dondero: 

You may have thought you'd never see the day. But we've finally arrived. The government bans drinking among legal adults ages 18 to 21 years of age. Why not seniors too? After all, it would help save health care costs. And might even improve the longevity and lifestyles of those over 65. 

From the UKExpress, "Lower alcohol limits called for to stop over 65s binge drinking - ACADEMICS have called for lower recommended alcohol levels to be set for those over 65 after a study found heavy drinking is on the rise among the age group.":
Dr Katie Haighton, also at the Institute of Health and Society, Newcastle University, said: "Alcohol interventions are not working for older people for many reasons. 
"A lot of those we interviewed said the messages around alcohol were very confusing. There is a need to develop new approaches to target the older population, for example longer in-home support, tailored information on the risks from alcohol in later life, or health workers with specific training on older people's needs. 
"We also think the Government really needs to start looking at lowering the recommended limit for alcohol consumption in those over 65."
Hey, why not just ban alcohol altogether. It worked so well in the 1920s. And it would make our new Muslim immigrants quite happy. Of course, the rest of us will be severely depressed, bored and thirsty. But hey, enjoying your life and having the personal liberty to do as you please, are overrated concepts anyway.

Misleading title -- in fact, just some "academics" at a low grade UK university are calling for this; nothing to do with any government anywhere.
