Stick that in your pint & drink it!

The Pub Curmudgeon has yet again found an article you might be interested in. India Knight in The Times presents a common sense view of drinking, which is a nice contrast to the puritanical views of the former comedian and born again alcohol crusader, Frank Skinner. Just because you couldn't drink without becoming senseless, Frank, doesn't mean that the rest of us should wear hair shirts for your failings. Unlike you, most of us didn't swim through a sea of vomit before growing up.

Curmudgeon's posting is here, and India Knight's article is here.
P.S. Tyson, another beer blogger, has also written about Frank Skinner. I agree with his comments too.


  1. I read India Knight yesrerday. Good stuff, but she'll probably get flak for it.

  2. Perhaps, but only from alcohol puritans and the gormless media types they've successfully conned. Most people who go to the pub, and there's still plenty of them, would not disagree with her. Actually, come to think of it, neither would the home drinkers. We mustn't forget the alcohol puritans are in the minority ~ they're just very noisy.
