£1 a drink!!

Some EVIL bastards, yesterday


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?

Just what the cunting fuck has it got to do with the polis?

"can cause young people to drink too much and misbehave."

Young people? Isn't there a law that those over 18 are entitled to buy and consume alcohol in licensed premises? If the Govt/Police think that is not a responsible age, and 'young people' cannot be trusted surely the solution is to raise the drinking age to 21 or 30 rather than punish everyone else for 'young peoples' behaviour, if that is the apparent problem?

I see 'young people' can be trusted to operate armoured vehicles however as the latest 20 year old to die for no reason in godforsaken wogland is named today

I hope you don't think I am being cynical, but a headline a day keeps the election away.

I remember buying large whiskeys at 32p a time at the Feathers in Ealing! Never did me a lot of harm.

From what I have seen, the troublesome youngsters drink in the expensive places and the peaceful old farts (like me) drink in the cheaper ones. Is there any REAL evidence that putting up the price of booze will reduce problems?

It's been a hard day at the Commission for Progressive Equality and Diversity, so Fenella Quangoe and the girls kick back with a few drinks at the organic wine bar, courtesy of the expense account.

Not shown: Fenella argues with her cocaine dealer after he reveals that some of his products are not "fair trade".

I'd be happy to pay full price for drinks to get this evil lot in a fivesome!

There is of course one rapidly increasing segment of the population of modern Britain that would very much welcome a clamp down on everything alcohol related.

It couldn’t possibly be that the establishment is softening up the rest of us to accept ever more alcohol restrictions to appease this certain group?

FFS! Why the fuck don't the police get on with what is meant to be their job, patrolling the streets etc & fuck off & mind their own business about anything else? Let's see a lot more cops out on the street & a lot less of them shooting their gobs off to 'the meeja'about their opinions. 'Penalties' - exactly who the fuck do they think they are?

Is this story a wind-up?
How can the Police instruct anyone to obey orders to form a cartel to maintain the price of a commodity.
Aren't there laws about price fixing?

As someone says, all the local younglings head for town and the expensive theme bars ( thought the police might have noticed ).
The skint ones rob from off-licenses and drink in the park.

Not sure about the answer to this one, although recently a pub lunch (leaving do) was moved to pizza hut because 2 of our 56 staff were of the said "non drinking" clan, and the management did not wish to offend.
