Travellers face a ban on drinking alcohol on trains, buses and trams across the country, it was revealed last night.
The drastic plan to cut loutish behaviour will be considered as part of a Government review aimed at making public transport safer.
Fucking hell, frankly. Why the cunting fuck does Jacqui Smith (or any of the rest of you) think that alcohol makes people into louts? Some people are simply louts and any alcohol merely emphasises that fact. You want to cut loutish behaviour on public transport?—ban louts from travelling on it (oh, and do please tell me how you'd enforce that).
And if you think that banning certain people from public transport is wrong, then may I suggest that you shut the fuck up on the issue of alcohol? I may? Then do.
Shadow Home Secretary David Davis said the Tories were delighted their ideas...
See? The Tories are going to be just as big a bunch of authoritarian cunts as NuLabour.
... were being copied by the Government, but added that the devil would be in the detail. He said: "Even when this Government looks like it is getting it right, it often ends up getting it wrong."
Police already have powers to designate trains and coaches going to and from sporting events as "dry", but a wider ban would prove controversial.
Critics warn that it could fail to curb violence as troublemakers have usually been bingeing in pubs and clubs.
Well, exactly. And that is precisely the same for public transport in London. You fuckwit, Boris.
It would also stop law-abiding travellers enjoying a glass of wine with a meal on an inter-city journey.
Well, as we've seen from the last couple of comment threads, most people don't care. That's right, isn't it? Guys?
It could even raise the farcical prospect of passengers on Eurostar trains being made to drink up before entering England.
Farcical indeed. But it's all for the greater good, isn't it? Guys? Commenters? Hello...?
Liberal Democrat spokesman Chris Huhne said: "A drinks ban on all public transport including long-distance rail would be completely over the top, widely ignored and impossible to enforce.
"This would be the nanny state gone mad. Ordinary passengers should not be punished for the misbehaviour of a minority."
But they are. And, as all too many of The Kitchen's commenters have shown, a lot of people are in favour of punishing the innocent for the sins of the guilty. Ain't that right, guys?
As ever, Falco brings another take to this.
It really is a mutual spiral of fuckwittery lead authoritarianism. The thing is that if you accept the principle behind the no drinking on the tube idea then how can you object to this:No Muslims on the tube.
Boris today explained that while he accepted that most Muslims were no trouble on the tube at all, those few who were caused such serious trouble, (far more than any drunk), that it would be best to "send a message" to crack down on tube explosions.
orNo Blacks on the tube:
Boris launched his new policy of a "Darkie free tube" today. He explained to the baying mob that just because most blacks were law abiding did not excuse the increased incidence of theft by this ethnic community. The best way to send a strong message on crime was to ban the lot of them. When asked what would be the situation if you had mixed parentage Boris replied, "We are making the tube a safer, better place. So frankly I wouldn't show up if you've got even a bit of a tan."
Would anyone like to pipe up in favour of the above? No.
Well, what a fucking surprise.
