Re: [OPE] BBC E-mail: Venezuela bans sale of Coke Zero

The (quite nice) alcoholic drink absinthe has been banned in the USA
(from 1912) for its supposed harmful effects. Only recently (last year
I think) has the ban been partially lifted.

I've tried Coke Zero, and looked at the ingredient list. It's clearly
a nasty drink.

By forwarding this article it makes me think you will grab at anything
to try to criticize the current Venezuelan government, so it makes me
less likely to listen to you on this subject.

By the way, as someone who has grown up with BBC news I can tell you
quite plainly that is is not objective and follows a definite
political agenda.
