Tory leader David Cameron believes children should be introduced to alcohol at home, writes Ewan Turney Cameron said that drinking can be social and is something that is part of life. During his holiday in Newquay, Cameron took questions from Radio 1's Newsbeat listeners. He said: "Some of the friends I had, the ones who had the biggest problems, were the ones who actually were never allowed to drink anything at home – whereas the ones who drink responsibly were the ones who were given a glass of wine or a small glass of beer or a shandy or something," he said. "That's the right way to do it in the home." Cameron was also asked whether the Tories would consider creating public spaces where teenagers could drink. He answered: "When you're a teenager and you go to parties normally there are adults there, so that is fine. "I think the idea of saying that we need to create some kind of public space where that happens, I think that's quite different."
