Hurrah! At last, the government have finally admitted that it’s OK to “get drunk once in a while”. In a speech to some kids in Scotland, Jack McConnell (no, I’ve never heard of him either) reassured everyone that it was OK to get a little merry every so often, but that people should be aware of the problems of binge drinking.
At least, that’s how I’m reading the story.
I shall be sure to take his example and only get pissed, say, once a month, maybe every couple of weeks. I might have the odd beer here and there (I’m mostly a social drinker and hardly ever over-do it) but once in a while it’s good to go out with your mates and down a few. Not so good in the morning, but there you go.
