Public wants.

Reading this article about a special police enforcement operation against teenage drinkers. Yay! One of the few things available to our kids now for their spare time. Lots of numbers and stats there just to keep you interested although I was too bored to do any maths.

I was particularly interested in the statement 'Home Office Minister Vernon Coaker said the public wanted police to "choke" the supplies of alcohol to youths.'. Cool. If that's what the public wants but, hold on a minute, don't they also want;

- Criminals pursued and prosecuted.
- A referendum on the EU Treaty.
- A general election.
- The UK out of Iraq/Afghanistan.
- Less tax.
- Less benefits.
- Politicians prosecuted for their crimes.
- Gordo executed using the slowest and most painful method possible preferably involving something large inserted into his bottom. Have to be really large though as from the looks of him he was bullied at school. This symbolises what he has done to the UK whilst *cough* serving the public.
- ......

The list goes on and on. Blogger only gives so much web space but I'm sure you get the idea. How come only the wants of a whingy whiney few spoilsports are actually listened to by our police? The rest of us rant and complain impotently. Our wishes are never listened to. So it's not really what the public wants it's what our useless politicians want and a select few puritans get to see enacted what they want.

Perhaps soon we will get control back of our country and then we can see all these things implemented. Can't wait.

Can you imagine the impossibilty of the girls and boys in blue actually achieving their aim of "choking off" the alcohol supply to yoofs.
In view of the fact that such a crusade offers little prospect of generating any revenue, I think it's safe to assume that this will be a one off operation, purely for publicity purposes.

The voice of reason is never heeded.

One can only hope that eventually common sense will prevail.

I look forward to the next election when the MP for Kirkcaldy is beaten into third place by the SNP and some other Scottish political non-entity - oh what a joyous day that will be.

John, it did say it was a special operation. IMO, similar to Operation Trident and with the same chance of succeeding with a long term solution. However, being primarily PR, it will have achieved its real objectives and everyone will be happy. Yippee.

James. It’s because the voice of reason is willing to listen to reason themselves and these people never give an inch. No matter what the facts are they are ignored or ridiculed if they do not fit it to their narrow viewpoint. It’s a tried and tested way to push their views and has worked for decades in western society.

Henry, Common sense should be renamed. It isn’t that common. It won’t swing into action. Self preservation will be the one that kicks in and eventually will kick this useless bunch out. At the moment however there is no real alternative. One will come along soon and the stances in all parties will change. At the moment they don’t have to.
