What are they drinking?

2013-05-10 16:04

I read, with some interest, and  a fair degree of scepticism, the recent uttering of cabinet ministers promising no-drink and driving laws, no alcohol sales on Sundays and laws to limit alcohol advertising in the media.

Regarding no alcohol sales on Sundays, I cannot for a second think that people will drink less on Sundays as they will simply stock up on Saturdays. The only businesses that will be affected are the restaurant types who make more money from alcohol sales than from food, if urban legend is to be believed.

My plea to the powers that be (or not) is to make laws and regulations that are fair and practical and that have a consistent, unambiguous message.
