Brits lie about what massive alkies they are
When your GP asks you how much you drink, what do you say? Do you break down and tell them that on the way there you had 2 litres of Malibu and a lighter fluid chaser? Or do you just breezily say: ‘The usual, really. About 14-21 units a week’ while trying to hide your DTs?
Researchers at University College London (who are probably constantly off their tits on port), compared alcohol sales figures with surveys of what people said they drank. And GUESS WHAT? There were a hell of a lot of cans of Tennent’s Super unaccounted for. Basically, they've found us out for the nation of drunk, indolent liars we really are.
The rather wholesomely named Sadie Boniface, who is leading the University College study, said: "Currently we don't know who consumes almost half of all alcohol in England.’
Ooh, I dunno, either.
