Thunderbird...I think it's a by-product of the American "defense" industry, or something.

Diesel is a drink of choice around these parts.

- Double Vodka shot
- Half pint Strongbow
- Dash of Blackcurrent
- Top off with Stella

Friends who used to drink the strawberry milk shakes claimed three of them were enough to cause acute kidney pain the next day.  Mind you, each one contained a minimum of six units of alcohol, if you were lucky, (the "top shelf job" being a very loose definition depending on which bar you were in).

Back to the subject.

There was a six axle tanker lorry heading north on the M5 this morning. On the back was the proud logo 'Buckfast Tonic'.

Causal link between Buckfast and violence?

Quote
Rather than start from the standpoint that this humble tonic wine was a "bad thing", we simply wanted to find out why it had acquired a reputation, particularly in the central belt, as Scotland's "commotion lotion".

I thought the indifference of the distributor was quite unpleasant but not surprising.  I wonder if he would be so complacent if the victims of a Chateau du Bucky glassing started claiming damages from them through the civil courts (if such could be done)?

I thought the indifference of the distributor was fairly reasonable.  The problem isn't with the product; it's with the little chavsters who drink it until they punch someone.

I'm amazed how much caffeine it contains. Maybe it's one for the Audaxers  :)

Having heard The News Quiz last night, I now thoroughly approve of Buckfast Wine.  8)

+1.  Very amusing. 

I suspect that all this attention, precipitated by a programme critical of the product, will be of net benefit to sales.
