Drinking for Britain

Paul Skidmore at the Demos Greenhouse riffs nicely on the Daily Mail’s latest rant topic, the 2003 Licensing Act.

Of course, the Daily Mail is onto a winner here. Lots of fuming sixty-somethings, the Youth of Today, What Was Wrong With The Old Laws. Sigh. And, of course, it’s so much easier to campaign against a Government policy when it’s already been law for 2 years. Then it’s much easier to criticise them for not listening to the People Of Britain (by which, of course, the Daily Mail means the Daily Mail).
