Official says Britons like getting drunk too much

`Attempts to wean Britons away from binge drinking toward a more continental European “cafe style” culture may never work because too many like getting drunk, a cabinet minister said Sunday.

“I don’t know whether we’ll ever get to be in a European drinking culture, where you go out and have a single glass of wine,” Labor Party chair Hazel Blears said.

“Maybe its our Anglo-Saxon mentality. We actually enjoy getting drunk,” she told the Sunday Times newspaper in an interview.’
