Hockey: There is no drinking problem

Shadow Health Minister Joe Hockey has told Sky News Australia "most Australians are very responsible when it comes to alcohol consumption" and "we have to stop pointing the finger at young Australians, in saying they are consistent binge drinkers, they are not". He said Australia should focus more on illegal drugs as "over the last few years young people have turned to drugs, because alcohol has either become more expensive or its been harder to access".
