...furthermore

...they keep blethering on about “binge drinking”. It’s the latest cry on the BBC. Presumably, (though, to be frank, I don’t read the blighters), in the tabloids too.

Hmm. Immoderate and self indulgent feature somewhat. That’s a laughable combination of adjectives for you. Immoderate behaviour, occasionally, is the difference between being human and being a machine.

Self indulgence, on the other hand, is the spirit of our age: consume, consume, consume… It’s a sick, sad, feckin’ enslavement.
