Is this the end of life as we know it?

The terrifyingly named internal European parliamentary committee the Committee for Prevention and Protection at the Workplace (CPPW), has had a meeting the results of which might cause some who work here a litle disquiet,
"The brainstorming session was the result of the EP Secretary-General’s invitation to the CPPW last August to consider whether the EP should regulate alcohol consumption at work".
This is the sort of dictatorial and authoritarian type of stuff I came here to fight.
Worse still they came to some decisions,
"Points of agreement

Most round table participants felt there was a need to:

1 - lay down rules, (Lay down rules, well yes, they are bureacrats, that's what they do).
2 - hold those in charge to account (Why not hold those doing it responsible)
3 - dare to discuss the problem with those concerned ("Oi mate, you're drinking too much you know... " I can see the response now)
4 - define responsibilities (You get the first round in)
5 - offer opportunities for withdrawal programmes (Eh?)
