    They used to try to force us to drink that disgusting cow juice when I was at school.

    I suspect that a “community wellbeing spokeswoman” would be right up for some enforced watering. For the common good of course!

      If she floats, she’s guilty, and we should burn her!

    On tap Julia, far to easy there would be no need for a “community wellbeing spokeswoman” if we all thought that way ! it’s amazing in these austere times that those sort of jobs are considered to be ‘vital’ to the nations health.

    Ah, but tap water is not as desirable as mineral water in a feeder bottle – the infantilised modern yoof can only hydrate by suckling.

      I hate those things! What on earth is the point? Did they start when jogging became a fad?

    I don’t really like fizzy drinks so I don’t tend to drink them. I do drink water quite a bit, both tap water and bottled water. The water in our taps is very palatable but if you keep it in a bottle for even a short time it becomes much less so. For that reason I keep bottled water in the car. It is quite important for me to keep myself hydrated because I have type 2 diabetes.

    As an aside, the diabetes is hardly a problem if you keep yourself very fit. When I was first diagnosed, three years ago this week in fact, my condition was so bad that it was thought to be type1 and I was put on insulin. I now need no medication at all and just have a check up every six months to monitor the condition.

      I wonder why more doctors don’t recommend it? Because they think people won’t stick to it? Or because popping pills has become the Western way of life?

    I think that make water more freely available is a euphemism for make soft drinks less freely available. Nothing to do with cost.
