Claire Phipps epitomises the obtuseness of the Guardian pundit who only complains of excessive government interference when it is into something which affects her personally. In this case: women who drink.
Young women have got the government worried. Our drinking is, apparently, out of control. And so the No 10 strategy unit report on alcohol misuse, due this month, is expected to recommend a public information campaign aimed at the "Bridget Jones generation". Concerned department of health officials will back this up with a new Hello!-style magazine, Your Life!, packed with celebrity-endorsed, cautionary tales about the dangers of binge drinking... If it is indeed "our life", may I suggest the government leaves us in peace with our G&Ts?
