My brilliant idea for the 2020 Summit, the meeting of Australia's best and brightest minds, has not had any coverage in the press this week, despite the fact that I contacted several individuals and community groups and asked them to consider it. What is my fantastically clever idea? Make standard drink sizes bigger. There is so much hoo-ha at the moment about binge drinking, and how people need to drink less for their health - well if the standard size was bigger, then I am sure most people wouldn't mind nearly as much all of a sudden only being allowed to have two standard drinks a night.
