It should not be a requirement that drinkers enjoying a pint of beer in the sunshine should have to do so out of a plastic 'glass'.  I have never – ever – seen anyone attack someone with a glass and resent being made to feel like a potential criminal myself.  It's not just the inherent silliness of the law, it's that beer just isn't as nice to drink out of plastic.

And while I'm about it, is it true or is it a myth that pubs are not allowed by law to serve beer in the traditional dimpled mugs?  The 'reason' I have heard given is that the handle enables the glass to be used as a weapon (see above).

Why is this idea important?

This is typical of any number of laws and regulations that assume that everyone is either an idiot or a criminal.  I am not and I resent the suggestion that I am.
