Make mine a treble

I've been too busy to blog much, but this news report did catch my eye:

The figures also suggest that alcohol consumption is higher among the middle classes.

Men and women in "managerial and professional" households drank an average of 15.1 units a week.

In households classified as "routine and manual" the average consumption was 11.6 units a week.
Most commentators have suggested that this means middle class stress leads to heavier boozing. I think it means booze leads to riches. I'm off down the pub.

15 units a week - that's less than the healthy optimum isn't it?
