"Binge Drinking On The Jersey Agenda Again"

JERSEY’S heavy drinking habits are rubbing off on the Island’s youth, a recent health survey has found.
Although the number of ten- to 15-year-olds who drink alcohol has fallen since 2006, when the last survey was held, the latest questionnaire has thrown up statistics which head of heath improvement Andrew Heaven described as ‘challenging’.
The figures show that:
• More than half of 14- and 15-year-olds who drink alcohol do so to excess.
• Six per cent of 10- and 11-year-old boys had drunk alcohol without their parents knowing in the week before the survey.
• A quarter of 14- and 15-year-old drinkers drink more than they intend to at least once a month.
•  Seventy per cent of 12- and 13-year-olds had tried alcohol – down from 83 per cent in 2006.

Jersey are happy to blame the parents of these kids, yet it is the States of Jersey and it's oppressive regime over the years that turned the parents into alcoholics! The quite rancid accomodation that most have had to endure over the last thirty years can be seen as a major contributor. No-one ever gave a damn about those coming here to make a new life, a weeks wages for a weeks rent was all the rich were interested in.

"It's Your Mess 'RICH PEOPLE OF JERSEY' Clean It Up!!!"
