  3. I'm on the wagon, trying to shed a few pounds like you. I haven't had a drink since christmas. Right at this minute I would barter a kidney for a gin and tonic....

  5. I don't know - I like a little drink and I like Lidl (haven't been to Aldi) but there is something deeply depressing about that advert - like the effects of gin.

  7. Our Aldi store does sell tea, but no gin. They would do a better business if they did.

    Great ads.

  16. I was in a pub the other week (no surprise there!) that sold what it called 'Earl Grey's Special Tea' - which had a large shot of Bombay Sapphire in it.

    I like tea WITH gin!

  17. This from a government that has a subsidised bar and a £2,000,000 stock of wine in its cellar that they voted NOT to sell-off as an austerity measure last year.

    Mr Camoron can go ... pour himself a large one.

    Splendid advertisement.

  18. I must admit that I love this advert, even though I'd far rather have a cup of tea than a glass of gin LOL

  19. I don't like tea or gin, but I do like a nice cup of coffee with Tia Maria in it :)

  20. I once saw a rather scruffy looking Kenneth Clarke in Asda with a shopping trolley full of malt whiskey.

    Fucking hypocrites.

  21. Like Sharon, i much prefer tea to gin (the latter gives me a wicked headache) but i loved the advert.

    I don't drink alcohol very often. When i do, it's usually Scotch.

  22. I understand the sentiment entirely, John.

    Sadly, we have no gin in the house, or Scotch (which I prefer to gin), so I'm stuck with tea.

    That's a lot to Bear on a Monday.

    Only saving grace: the tea's very good! And it won't mess up my medications.

  23. P.S.: As I'm heading into the third week of the Chronic Pain Centre's treatment program, some Scotch might give me extra fortitude. I've always though Scotch was an excellent analgesic, and ideal for those of us living with chronic pain.

    There are, however, those who think differently on the matter of pain and Scotch for analgesia. Sigh. Good-hearted souls, but, well, you (being a nurse) know. Sigh, again.
