Should we ban Alchopops........

#1
The news is constantly talking about the binge drinking culture and related problems.

Personally I think binge drinking has always existed (older people forget how much they pished it up!) and will never change and that raising the drinking age to 21 would unfairly penalise those hard-working 18 years olds who actually have a job and just want to chill out at the end of the week.

Price is another issue - I wish I could drink in a pub as cheaply as the media makes out - lager is not cheap either are soft drinks - its just those alchopop style drinks that are.

My thought is that if we banned alchopops it would force people back to the more traditional beers and spirits thus slowing down their drinking rate
and alleviating the problem

But hey I'm not a politician - cutting back on opening hours and raising the drinking age seem sexier to them!!!!

Ban the chav tarts and their respective opposite sex.

Banning alchopop's isn't the answer, people will just drink something else!

Why should everyone else be punished for others behaviour? It fooks me off how all these chavvie bastards ruin everything for everyone else, and I bet whoever suggested this thought of it while slammin a bottle of red wine....

Bar tagging the bastards if they misbehave, I can't think of another solution!

Binge drinking is the latest name for getting pissed. It's always happened but now if you beat some one to death or wreck the local taxi office (open rag of choice for examples) when pissed, you will only get a 5 quid fine and told to carry on. Theres no consequences anymore for bad behaviour, no sense of responsibility for your own actions so no incentive to behave properly. Bang a few drunk tossers up for 5 years and drunken fcukwits will vanish over night, see Singapore for proof.

Init, I went to Singapore last year, such a nice place, I read up on some of their laws before I went, UK should take some of them on!

Don't ban the drinks. Ban the Chav scum who drink them and then cause grief.

I can.

One of the stated aims of extending drinking hours was to develop a "cafe culture" like they have in France. If we are going to nick ideas from Le Frogs, then why stop there; lets set up a British version of the CRS.

A British Chav in Paris would soon be introduced to Monsuier Heavy Baton and wake up in hospital minus a few teeth and pints of blood. :twisted:

As any martial arts instructor will tell you, pain is a great teacher. Even Chavs will learn to control themselves when the alternative is broken bones...

and isn't the minimum age for alcohol consumption in France 14?

Don't ban fcuk all. Don't raise taxes anymore, Just shut the local shops that sell it to kids. Binge drinking? We've been a pi$$ head country since the 1600, why change now.
Who the fcuk would want to live in a poilce state like Singapore? What next? Fines for long/short hair? dirty cars? Ugly wives?

My bold........

To be fair, if you look at the laws most of them are common sense, if you do something stupid you will be punished, heavily either financially or with the rattan cane, it works, there are no drink drivers in Singapore because its 10 years if you do, no one drops litter, chewing gum or fag butts, I've never been to a cleaner city!

(The porn ban is pretty stupid, but the oral sex one is cool, its only aloud as fore play so if you get a blowy you'll get a jump hahhaa!)

There is allot going on at present:

Smoking bans
Pubs dying on there feet
Online betting at home
Bingo halls, bookies also suffering
Supermarkets selling 3 x 18 can crates for as little as £20


Personaly I beleive that the legal age for drinking should be raised to 21.
All establishments that sell alcohol must be forced to ask for ID by law.

Our Govn't wants to turn us into a bunch of wine quaffing europeans that sit outside cafe' bars playing backgammon. Pis*ing in the wind really.

However, nothing will ever change as like smoking, sales of alcohol raises billions in taxes every year.

Mmmm....Police State.... :pissed: :twisted:

Fines for dirty cars is OK, but I'm afraid having an ugly wife will be punishible by death. :D

Drinking in Singaaore is quite simple - Go to the JB taxi rank and go to JB in Malaysia for a beer. Break even for two of you is two shouts - ie for 5 beers it is cheaper to get a taxi to another country (and back).

We were chatting about alcopops the other day and about when they first appeared on the scene, we came to the conclusion it was the introduction of Diamond White in the late 80's that led the way closely followed by K. All I know is that many a PT session wasn't performed to my best due to the effects of these devils brews!

Introduce a "drinking tax" for under 25s. We do it with car insurance, why not with alcohol. Why not levy a "binge tax" when a bunch of chavs turn up. Publicans can assess their drunkeness based upon their speech capability and can have discretion to charge them what they like.
