Having spent the past fortnight abstaining altogether from newspapers - one form of abstinence I can heartily recommend - it is peculiarly dispiriting to be back in the world of British 'news' and find the same old stuff still churning round and round. Today the anti-alcohol wowsers return to the fray, declaring war on those notorious menaces to society, the middle-class drinkers. The aim now, it seems, is to make drinking as 'socially unacceptable' as smoking. Does any sane person seriously believe in these nonsensical 'safe drinking' guidelines? I trust not. Meanwhile, I bang my head lightly against the wall... Oh and the Nasty Party (i.e. the Lib Dems - the filthies fighters in any electoral battle) have pointed poor old Ming's zimmer frame towards the exit and given him a helpful shove. Another unsavoury bloodbath will follow, and in due course another coup. They seem to come around every few weeks. Like so much else in the 'news'.
