Grumpy Old Men

From a previous post here which outlined a few sign-posts to look for in the slow road toward the banning of alcohol:

1. It will be illegal, in a public space, to consume alcohol

From the news report of today Police chief urges alcohol action:

A chief constable has called for a ban on drinking in public areas outdoors to help combat underage alcohol abuse and anti-social behaviour.

Of course, there is a long road from a chief constable being quoted to a law being made but that road is shorter than you may like to think.
