    now my friends have gone,
    and my hair is grey,
    and I ache in the places that I used to play.

      I'd argue that Scandinavians on holiday in the Canaries, or just about anywhere else for that matter, beat us hands down. When alcohol costs as much as it does in their neck of the forest, it's pretty much like presenting them with a free bar.

      i'd want to know who and how defined "drunk" and is it the same in all countries, and objectively measured?

      You can't even read and yet you respond. It's really quite sad. Like a beached whale desperately thrashing about on a beach, except there's no one willing to push you back into the sea. Because the whale is a ****.

      The government spending on raising awareness of the dangers of alcohol is less than 0.5% of how much companies spend advertising alcohol.
      This is the only possible outcome.

      This. There’s an awful lot of hypocrisy up here regarding the drinking habits of the British. I’ve been on holiday with English family and friends and I’ve been on holiday with Norwegian family and friends and alcohol has more often been an issue with the latter.

      The article linked says Britons get sheeboed more often than any other nationality ie 51 times a year. I would think that Scandinavians limit their binges to their holidays?

      NSC at its very best ~ a post based on assumption on a matter the poster hasn't got a clue about!!
