Apparently Commons staff are to be told to top up MPs' glasses fewer times at Parliamentary receptions to encourage "responsible alcohol use". John Bercow: more MPs seeking help for alcoholism - Telegraph Are they drinking more because they are under more stress? Or is it simply the fault of "Commons staff", thoughtlessly topping up glasses at "dos". If the latter, then sackings are in order. They could always get rid of the subsidy on booze in the Palace of Varieties and close the shop that sells cheap "Speaker's Choice" Whisky.
