Some opposition publications, such as the “Seychelles Weekly” has come down hard on alcohol advertising, which ultimately targets the companies.
This is something new. Nobody condones alcohol abuse. And we also believe it should not be advertised.
Yet, during the years 2015 and 2016, alcohol was widely sold at stalls at opposition tralalas. This was seen as a good way of wooing the crowds. A good share of LDS votes came from people making a bundle from the sale of various alcoholic beverages.
It all boils down to sheer hypocrisy.
