    Default #VINB Tue 4/6/2013: Alcohol sponsorship of sport

    Sarah O’Connor, Chief Exacutive, The Federation Of Irish Sport Staff | Federation of Irish Sport
    Róisín Shortall, Independent TD Dublin North West Róisín Shortall - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Independent (former Labour) TD Róisín Shortall says the link needs to be broken between sport and the promotion of alcohol and difficulty lies in the return alcohol industries receive in sponsoring sports events.
    She says alcohol industries have access to promotional opportunities and marketing which then promotes excessive drinking, especially among young people.

    The Irish Rugby Fooball Union said the withdrawal of sponsorship by drinks companies of sporting events would leave a gap in revenue that could not be replaced and criticised the Department of Health for failing to work with sporting organisations.

    Media reports suggest that new legislative proposals circulated in Government by Minister of State Alex White would outlaw all drink sponsorship of large sports events by 2020 and ban new sponsorship contracts from 2016. It is understood arts and cultural festivals would be exempt from the ban. Ms Shortall said she believed the phasing out of such sponsorship by 2020 was reasonable, saying it would allow sports organisations to find alternative sponsors.

    So, tonight Vinny looks at this “complex issue”, as Leo Varadkar describes it, with a panel which includes Róisín Shotall … Should be a good show with many tackles … might even get down and dirty …

    Competition especially for #VINB threads,

    To celebrate our 40th anniversary of joining the European Community in 1973 we have this artistic work of art of Manneken Pis in Brussels dressed as a Paddy [I don’t know why there is no orange]. This is high quality art and will give hours, even days, of pleasure no matter where you hang it up - the kitchen, the hallway, the living room, even the bathroom, as you gaze in wonderment on it in appreciation of all the wonderful things the EU has done to you.

    Entry is simple, if you would like your #VINB post considered as a wonderful post just type PIS at the end of your post. The decision to award a prize is by a specially appointed judging panel of myself, Astral Peaks and ruserious whose decision is final, and no correspondence will be entered into. Get that!

    Full instructions will be provided to all winning entries on how to get the best use out of this delightful print.

    Shorthall and White are the typical earnest lefty agitators.
    Ban and get rid of things they don't like but no viable alternatives to replace what they get rid of.
    Then you hear .
    "Oh but look at whats happening on the streets of Ireland every week end"
    But why don't you give the GS and the courts the tools to deal with gobshytes acting the maggot acting the maggot in a fast and effective manner?
    No we'll tax the some of the highest priced alcohol higher!
    Work of Genius.
    How will drink sponsorship be replaced in the worst depression since the 30's?
    Don't worry us with the situation we have our minds made up.
    We know whats best!

    I'm not sure that it will have the effect they apparently desire - a reduction in harmful drinking.

    Is there any evidence supporting this?

    Don't worry about that!
    They are engaged in lefty class warfare posturing as much as anything else.
    Let the rugby playing elites get stuffed.
    You don't vote Labour anyway!
    Probably as cynical as that underneath the veneer.

    Roisin is not an"Independent" TD,she is still a member of the Labour Party,herself Keavney,Broughan and Nulty have lost the parlimentary party whip,none of them have been expelled or resigned from Labour.In fact Keavney is still party chairman,much to the embarrassment of Gimmemore and the rest of the Stickies.
