MOSCOW, March 13. /ITAR-TASS/. LDPR (Liberal Democratic Party of Russia) leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky has suggested reviving the Sober Society and denying jobs to alcohol addicts.
Speaking at a round-table meeting Thursday which focused on problems of lowering the rates of alcohol abuse, Zhirinovsky boasted that "he had never bought a single vodka bottle in his life, but studied and worked day and night." He urged to campaign round the clock, explaining what harm the vodka does. He also warned that "modern films always feature someone pouring out alcohol; children who have been watching such scenes might think it is the right thing to do."
Zhirinovsky also suggested a ban on office “tea parties" at which alcohol is served and urged to deny jobs to alcohol addicts. "People who indulge in alcohol make their way to the top of the office hierarchy faster than an ordinary worker who takes no alcohol because alcohol helps “find the right person to drink with and offer the right thing to please with”. Society ought to repulse such people, Zhirinovsky stressed.
