I don't think raising the drinking age would help. Much better to clamp down on the bars which allow people to drink until they are out of control.

That's a very good point Dave. When I was in the pub trade, I got lots of grief for refusing to serve customers that had clearly had too much. I had a sign made for my front door that read; We serve drinks, not drunks.

Stone Island, you clearly recognise and understand the problem of drinking to excess.

It's a great pity that people with your understanding aren't Police and Crime Commissioners, but then that might be a sensible move, and we can't have that can we?
