'Twas Ever Thus

I haven't had time to post much lately, but to keep you going here's a thought-provoking cartoon borrowed from Private Eye, which I've been reading for 40 years now.
For more on Hogarth, see here. The poster depicted is an extract from his picture Gin Lane. Personally I find there are times when nothing hits the spot like a cool gin and tonic, but it's awful stuff to get drunk on (particularly, so a friend assures me, the cheap brand sold in Wellcome). Like Hogarth, I'm more of a beer man myself.
