Reversing some daft legislation

In the teeth of opposition from doctors and the police, New Labour pushed through lax drinking legislation turning the night hideous in our town centres.

Other nations had already found that introducing round-the-clock drinking led to a huge increase in rape and violence placing a strain on police and ambulance resources.

Now the Coalition is to introduce powers to reverse this nightmare and hopefully bring back the traditional pub in which the public can socialize without fear of assault.

Licensing decisions will be rebalanced in favour of local communities enabling them to reinstate traditional closing times in areas where late-night opening has caused havoc.

I am sure there will be screams of protest from the drink trade but they have clearly failed to behave responsibly and it is about time ordinary people were allowed a night’s rest.
