I've just flipped my lid.
There is a news article on the BBC website titled "Call to stop children's drinking".
Immediate reaction... there's nothing wrong with that is there?
Next paragraph: "Parents who give alcohol to children aged under 15 should be prosecuted, a charity has said."
When will people realise that you cannot address a breakdown in the structure of parts of our society by way of an endless cycle of legislation?
Yes, we have a problem with alcohol in this country. Yes, many of our town and city centres are blighted by binge drinkers. Yes, alcohol is a poison (and yes I have the occasional drink).
What do you do with all the criminals created as a result of passing so many laws that we become a nation of criminals?
Answers on a post card please.
