The drinker and the drunker.

ACCORDING TO A new survey by the British Council, foreigners like the Brits in general but think we drink too much. Or rather, that’s what certain elements of the press say they think. In truth a mere 24% of foreigners think it. Once they’ve visited us, the number increases to 34%. I’m a bit disappointed, to be honest. We could have done better than a measly 34%, because it means 66% don’t think we drink too much. In the eyes of the media, of course, 34 is a much bigger number than 66, which is why they claiming we’re a bunch of drunks.
