Ban on drinking in the street: Entire towns and cities to become public alcohol-free zones
Drinking in streets and parks will be banned in a fightback against 'Binge Britain'.
Look, my smokey colleague has endlessly highlighted the fact that the British population is drinking less than twenty years ago—not more. So where the fuck is this 'Binge Britain' narrative coming from? Apart from the fucking Mail itself, I mean.
Town halls are drafting new laws to introduce the first blanket bans on public drinking applying to entire towns.
Why the fuck do these authoritarian cunts think that it is in any way acceptable (and I grow tired of repeating this) to punish the innocent for the sins of the guilty?
I am starting to suspect that it is because our government is one that recognises no innocents—everyone is guilty of something and should be punished.
The move comes after Labour finally admitted that the 24-hour drinking it introduced—which the Mail campaigned against—was 'not working'.
I'm sorry but how, precisely, does one say that a law that allows pubs to open for 24 hours, if they wish to, is not working? How the fuck? Sure, drink-induced violence has not dropped, but it hasn't risen either, but so what?
Nottingham intends to be the first city to implement the ban. It is taking advantage of new legislation which, for the first time, will allow bylaws to be passed without needing approval by a Cabinet minister.
Nottingham said other town halls were also keen to introduce blanket bans - potentially outlawing street drinking across huge swathes of the country.
Council leader Jon Collins said: 'People understand clear messages. There's no confusion in alcohol-free zones. I do not think it's a civil liberties issue. It's about saying we do not want people drinking in the street.'
Of course it's a civil liberties issue, you disgusting little shit: how could it not be? You are removing people's freedom to do what they like, where they like, as long as they harm no one else! It is most definitely a civil liberties issue, no matter what you might "think" about it, Jon.
And who is this "we", Paleface? You and your fellow councillors? Were you elected on such a pledge? I bet you weren't. Have you actually asked anyone? I bet you haven't.
I don't care what your personal fucking morals or opinions are, Jon: you have no moral authority to force people to live under the tyranny of your personal mores.
If people are fighting in the streets, as you claim, or being drunk and disorderly then get your lazy fucking police force to arrest them—and then leave everyone else the fuck alone.
Do you see, Jon? The way that society is supposed to work is that you punish the guilty and you leave the innocent to go about their law-abiding business, you cunt.
Oh, and just in case you were still clinging to the delusion that the Tories are going to be any better, some twat from Spam's front bench weighs in...
The Tories backed Nottingham and said it was 'absolutely right' they should get tough on binge drinking on the streets.
Shadow Home Secretary Chris Grayling said: 'We've also got to deal with the huge flaws in our licensing system and in particular with the proliferation of late night offlicences which are adding to the very real problem of drink and anti-social behaviour.'
Take note, Jackart and others: these bastards are going to be just as bad as NuLabour.
What a choice we have next year, eh? What do you think—will you vote for the Blue viciously-statist, endemically-corrupt authoritarians, the Yellow viciously-statist, endemically-corrupt authoritarians or the Red viciously-statist, endemically-corrupt authoritarians?
Whichever one of these hideous collection of cunts gets in next year, will the last free man in Britain please turn out the lights...
UPDATE: Leg-Iron is typically excellent on this too.
Fuck me—I am so tired of being pushed around by totalitarian scum. Does anyone else feel the same...?
