24 Hour Drinking Feedback - Post Law

Published on December 6th 2005.

Click here for the 'Drinking Debate Continues' article

The 24 hour drinking debate has been raging in Manchester for months now, but last Thursday the 24th November saw the controversial new licensing laws finally brought into effect. Amid a millennium-bug style panic about violent drunks running amok on Manchester 's streets, the changes in the law actually came about quietly and pretty uneventfully.

Yes we should have 24 hour licensing, and yes there is a problem with people not knowing the difference between social drinkng and getting twatted. I very rarely get twatted, why should I be penalised for the sake of idiots? Making things 'illegal' has no bearing on their prevelance in society, ie drugs. Untill anti-social behaviour becomes completely unnacceptable, with real consequences, then the idiots will continue to rule the roost. Bars should be taking more responsibilty for the behaviour, they make the money, take the responsibility on board.

Quite frankly I'm happy not to have to rush from work to home grab a quickie insubstantial meal and race out again just to have a drink with my mates on a friday night. It means I can drink and chat with my mates for longer and meet my mates who work in bars after they finish work. !

24 hour drinking is a good thing. It's about time England shed the "nanny state" attitude and allowed people to make their own decisions. Landlords will act sensibly with the new laws and people should be allowed to purchase a drink when they wish. Old laws encouraged binge drinking so letrs hope things improve with time.
