Binge Drinking

Comment 12th August 2010

Why should the sensible alcohol-drinking majority be made to suffer paying the costs caused by the minority by increasing the price of alcohol???

The cost of policing the streets at night is billions. The wasted time in hospitals costs billions more and WORSE endangers lives of innocent people who genuinely need emergency help. It is horrendous how many hospital staff are attacked at night by drunken idiots.

The fines for alcohol related violence should be SUBSTANTIALLY increased to meet the costs of the extra policing, and those fines should be ENFORCED. We need deterrents that are going to work. Hopefully then this wasted hospital time will be freed up.

Why does this matter?

It saves lives.
