Following on from Leg Irons excellent piece below, it now appears that the Police will "take action" against licenced premises selling the evil drink to people at £1. I kid you not.
Pubs and clubs in a Leicestershire town are being urged not to sell cut-price alcohol, as part of a police campaign to discourage bad behaviour.
Venues in Loughborough are being asked to keep drinks prices above £1.50.
Sgt Andy Thornley said "irresponsible" promotions, in which spirits are sold for as little as £1, can cause young people to drink too much and misbehave.
The officer also warned that bars running irresponsible drinks promotion "could face action and penalties".
I wonder when the Police will stop the sale of petrol to people who might drive too fast?
