Any beer drinking champions in Labour these days?

Bob Hawke is a veteran beer drinker and a world record holder in his time for beer drinking:

The former prime minister Bob Hawke has turned back time, captured on video skoling a beer handed to him as he walked among the crowd at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

In the footage uploaded onto YouTube, Mr Hawke is handed the plastic cup by a spectator and at the same time a voice in the crowd is heard shouting: ”One for the country, Robert”.

Without hesitation the 82-year-old downed the beer in one go – taking about 11 seconds to finish it.

That is the same amount of time he is said to have taken to drink 2½ pints of beer when he set a world speed drinking record during his time as a student at University College, Oxford in 1955.

Makes me wonder though, does labour have any beer drinking champions in their ranks these days? Most of them look like they are more likely to drink a Cosmopolitan than a pint.
