The Times wrote:Surely a Whitehall of ministerial undrunkenness is a good development? Having been an adviser to the Labour governments of the 1970s and a former Sunday Times economics editor, David Lipsey (now Lord Lipsey), is not so sure: “Drink stopped the manic compulsion to do something every single day. A lot of what goes wrong now is due to ministers being too undrunk and too energetic and thinking up wheezes that they’d forget about if only they had a couple of large drinks.”
My favourite paragraph of the article, and I think a very telling one. The generalized narrative is that the quantity and regularity of drinking in the cabinet is in decline. I have heard that the commons in general has a few rowdy pockets which is reassuring. They do have subsidized bars after all
