When Elements Of The Ace Of Spades Lifestyle Collide

On the one hand, I am supposed to hate Scandis (and God knows I do) but on the on the other hand, I have to admire politicians that get too drunk to actually get any work done.

STOCKHOLM (AFP) - A teetotal group of Swedish lawmakers said Wednesday alcohol-free drinks should be served at official parliamentary functions because alcohol prevents some MPs from fulfilling their duties.

"We want (official functions in parliament) to be alcohol-free by default," Egon Frid, a member of the opposition Left Party and the head of a group of 14 teetotal MPs, told AFP.

He said those who wanted an alcoholic drink could have one, but they should have to ask.
According to Egon, alcoholic beverages are so readily available at work functions that some of his colleagues have a hard time "abstaining".

Clearly the bad guys are the whiners who want to get rid of the booze but what about the drunk parliamentarians? Is it possible there’s such a thing as a good Scandi?
