Blog: James WilmoreSelling alcohol is "legitimate", MPs conclude. Phew!

James Wilmore | 19 July 2012

Drinks producers in the UK won't have had much to cheer in today's MP-led report on alcohol. But they can breathe a sigh of relief in one respect.

Among their conclusions, MPs noted: "The business of supplying alcoholic products is an entirely legitimate business." 

An obvious point. But lest we forget, for a 13-year period last century in the 'Land of the Free', it was anything but a "legitimate business", as this short video neatly reminds us.
