I'd say there are far more young people between 18 and 21 who visit pubs and are not p1ssed up chavs than those that are. You simply don't notice them, by definition.

If someone (whether over 21 or not) is committing an offence (whether drunk or not) why not arrest them and charge them with that offence? Oh no, of ocurse, that would require the police to do some policing. Can't have that can we, it would drag them away from their paperwork and out of their cars.

There were 10 of us sitting outside our local club on the estate where we live last night, puffing away coz Chubby Brown doesn't want us to smoke in a social club.

FOUR TIMES a police car drove past, with TWO police officers in it, obviously checking up on the new 'law'.

On the fourth occasion, I held up my cigarette to prove I was in the right place. The car stopped and I was asked by P.C. Plod to ensure that the door into the bar was kept firmly shut, so my smoke wouldn't accidently drift into the club. There were only three people in the club and one of those was the duty bar-person.

I shut the door and made some remark about how that I thought two police officers and one expensive police car could well better be utilised to serve and protect against robbers, rapists, housebreakers, pedos and general ner-do-wells.

I wonder why that didn't fo down too well ?

The law was changed years ago in New York State to 21!
There are no more under 21 kids drinking and driving, and causing accidents than before!
The only difference is now, they can be charged with a further offence, of under aged drinking!

A drinking age of 21 never stopped anyone. If anything, it seems to encourage quite a few to drink, simply to rebel against the rule.

I think they should ban youngsters under the age of 65 from being in pubs, then us senile old farts would have plenty of room at the bar! beer
