I Now Agree With The Binge Drinking Adverts...

...I think the government, previously referrred to as 'that hectoring, interfering nanny state', should show more of them.

For the sake of the children Labour MPs:
Two Labour MPs took part in a champagne drinking contest on an official Commons junket to Paris, which led to one of them being violently ill.

Left-winger Bill Etherington drank so much that a doctor was called.

It was feared the MP might die after he defeated fellow Labour MP Geraldine Smith in the expenses-fuelled boozing competition.
The fears proved unfounded. They both lived.

The country just can't catch a break, can it?

Hey, at least they're not members of a government that is crackig down on alcohol abuse and nagging us all to abstain, and hence utter stinking hypocrites.

Oh, hang on...

'he says he has no memory of the incident.’

And FFS that's his best attempt at defence.

On second thoughts, maybe it just reflects on how much he cares what 'ordinary people' think.
