Abolish the law that prevents 16 year olds drinking beer

Comment 2nd July 2010

In the 70s when I started drinking it was easier to get served in a pub than in an offlicence. But the pub wouldn't serve strong drinks to young drinkers.

Now kids steal or buy alcopops, vodka and other portable hooch from offlicences but can't get served in pubs.

Allowing 16 and 17 year olds to drink "normal strength" beers of less than 4% strength would be good for our pubs, our teenagers and our parks.

Why does this matter?

Kids will drink and are drinking already, this will divert them to lower strength beer and put them in a safer environment.

Crime and disorder will be reduced, there will be less broken glass, vomit and urine in our playgrounds.
