Irk of the morning to you

1. The fact that Eurostar is out of action today (along with other train services) merits not a mention on News 24, but is the 2nd headline on EuroNews, I would have thought it was worth a mention.

[Edit: it has been mentioned now, at 10:13 - the breakfast segment of News 24 is particularly news free ]

2. Heavy drinking is not binge drinking. Most of the concerns about 'binge drinking' are not about binge drinking, they are clearly about heavy drinking and, specifically, regular heavy drinking which is precisely the opposite of binge drinking. This misappropriation of a word is not going to help the cause of those who have appropriated it, as it confuses the message they are trying to get over. As well as being irksome.
