"Oh for a taste of the warm South" Occitanie the booziest region

According to this report in Midilibre


The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

If, I understand correctly, "only 12.6%" drink every day (although they do not say what a "drink" is), I find that very much on the low side!

We're firm believers in giving our local industries our strongest support.

On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last, and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.

I have been looking at the various statistics for this.

Quite surprised that the UK in general drinks less than France, but maybe it is because beer is of less strength than wine?? Just a thought.

I do know that the french ladies in my entourage all too often seem to drink surreptitiously and will often refuse a drink in company, taking water instead.

And yet, I could quite often smell drink on their breath, probably because I drink so rarely that I can always smell it. And the most surprising was the teachers, but there you goWhistles [Www]
