Getting drunk

Sarah Lyall wrote an article about the new English prime minister in yesterday’s Herald Tribune.
This paragraph struck me as very informative: : “At Oxford, he was a member of the notorious Bullingdon Club, whose agenda consisted of getting dressed up, getting drunk and getting out of trouble by paying off the people whose things were destroyed in club bacchanalias.”

Now this is style: you destroy people’s belongings, but you pay them off.

Perhaps you should announce this before the bacchanal: “Hey, we will destroy your belongings, but you will make some money out of it.”
