Incidents related to excessive drinking should be charged fees.

 

I propose that anyone who needs medical attention due to excessive (binge) drinking should be charged for treatment. I’m not suggesting that there is profit made, just enough to cover costs. This may include any medical equipment used, and staff’s time. Binge drinking isn’t compulsory, and if the NHS started charging for drink-related accidents I’m sure not as much alcohol would be abused.

This idea could possibly extend to harmful-drug use.

Why is this idea important?

Trading Standards for Insurance policies

I'm a new driver.

I was shocked to get numerous qoutes from various insurance companies of nearly £4000. For a 1.2 clio. Twice the value of the car.

I believe this is extremley unfair on those drivers who are extremly sensible, like me…

I mean, how many 17 or 18 year olds have 4k lying around, and a car. Let alone the cost of petrol with all this tax on it.

I call the government to step in and sort this mess out, either with policies to proove that younger drviers can be sensible, or measures to make sure that 4K is really needed for a small car.

such measures could be a deposit based system, if you crash, you loose your deposit. Simple. I don't buy cinema tickets and rent a dvd instead that evening?

The minimum wage should be proportional to business size

I believe that the minimum wage should rise proportionally.

The problem with the minimum wage is that small business can't afford to pay the minimum wage, but some workers are happy to work for under this. On the flip side, there are big companies rolling around in profit who pay the minimum wage. Supermarkets are a great example of this.
