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…
