For the last fucking time: just because it would make things easier for the police doesn’t mean that a thing should be done.
Pub happy hours should be banned and supermarkets stopped from selling alcohol at a loss in order to combat drink-fuelled disorder, MPs have said.
The Home Affairs select committee said reckless drinking was placing a heavy burden on police resources.
Making rules that adversely affect the vast majority of the population to make the job of the police a little bit easier is not a course of action that should be considered in a free state. If the country is being run for the convenience of the police, then you’re taking it towards that wonderful concept, a ‘police state’.
It’s even worse when I don’t even think that most police would agree with the argument, because rare is the policeman that I know of that hasn’t taken advantage of cheep drink at some point or the other. Then again, the same holds for politicians, and they’re the ones leading this charge…
Now,now calling it a police state will just get people accusing you of wearing a tinfoil hat.
Close down the bars in the house of commons first.
Oh, by the way. Norn Iron was never affected when it came to firearms legislation. One can fire pistols here, in fact within a 10 mile radius of my house there are two clubs with indoor and outdoor ranges. Just so you know.
I’m used to having people look at me funny by now…
As for closing the bars in Parliament down, I see your point. But if they weren’t drunk half the time, just think how much more difficulty they could cause for us.
I knew that pistols were still legal over here, but I didn’t know that clubs were still about. May have to have a little look at something along those lines at some point…
Hmm, maybe the booze calms them down a bit…….
They have websites- kellsrpcDOTcom and br-pcDOTco.uk
These are the ones near me( and Nelly !) there are one heck of a lot of them in NI, I just checked.
12months club membership and then you can apply for a FAC to purchase a pistol etc. Made your day, huh?
