Binge drinking bullshit

A good night out is now regarded as binge drinking by the governments health authorities. They originally wanted it to be as low as two drinks. But they would wouldn't they? What a better way to justify their existence then to make reasonable behavior wrong?

Mr Rudd was just on TV claiming the mums and dads were concerned about the dangers binge drinking pose to their kids. Well they might be too, but the same mum and dads enjoy having a few drinks at the club on Saturday night too.

I don't think I'm alone in thinking this a self serving over-reaction too. Heres the result on the instant poll on the poll as of a few minutes ago:

Is four beers or three wines a binge?
