Once upon a time, famous folk used to do really mad and bad things – today’s headlines emphasise how stupid society has become, though:
People who even think about going for a drink face being banned from their town centre for up to two days under wideranging new police powers.
I’m not denying that smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol cause health and other problems – but it does seem ridiculous that these are being turned into heinous crimes.
As a celebrity’ PR practitioner, you must get used to all sorts of calls, but it must be hard not to laugh when your client is accused of having a legal cigarette or a tipple too many.
Hardly Fatty Arbuckle is it?
