Love the Brits…

But they’re going mad

One of the charms of Europe was the early drinking age accompanied by a dearth of teen drinkers in the pubs and streets. When people drank, they did little more than continue their conversations in a louder voice. Stagger home at the end of the night, call it good. Now the UK is marching towards chaos and the inevitable infantilization of the populace, as the constables can’t keep up with the boozing football hooligans.

My suggestion: attend to the 24-hour drinking first, deal with the age limit later. There’s much pain avoided by cutting off people’s access to booze when they’ve been drinking all night.
