Have a read of this, if you’ve not read it already, and then explain to me:
Are they really proposing the make a law that says you can do this sometimes as long as you don’t do it too often?
I mean, really, what kind of insanity is that? And how often is too often? Twice a week? Twice a month? Twice a year?
Really, is it so difficult to decide what’s illegal, and enforce it? We already have offences relating to antisocial behaviour when drunk – ancient ones. Drunk and disorderly, drunk in charge, whatever happened to those? Don’t they work on teenagers?
In any case, “persistently possessing alcohol in public” – even if you don’t drink it – is a ridiculous pseudo-crime, and that way madness lies. If madness isn’t what we’ve already stumbled into. Tsk.
