Institute of Alcohol Studies
The Institute of Alcohol Studies is an anti-alcohol organisation, a Fakecharity, and is the trading arm of another charity - the Alliance House Foundation. The latter has had numerous names in the past, later ones were changed to make the organisation seem less prudish and puritanical:
20 July 1852 - The National League for the Total and Legal Suppression of Intemperance was formed by Nathaniel Card - a Quaker and previously a member of the Manchester and Salford Temperance Society. Rather than espouse temperance and teetotalism, they aimed for actual legislation to ban alcohol completely.
14 Feb 1853 - The name changed to the United Kingdom Alliance for the Suppression of the Traffic in all Intoxicating Liquors.
1942 - The organisation became a limited company and changed its name to UK Temperance Alliance Ltd
2003 - Change of name again to Alliance House Foundation
