It's times like these that I can see the merits of Sajdin 's constant calls for banning alcohol!
Whilst we all know it's a non starter I really wish that people would learn to handle it better. Alcohol isn't mentioned in the article I can hear you saying - no, but odds are it was.

What is it with 'Darreners' and knives?

Yesterday they were over at Burnley having a knife point siege with armed cops and now this.

Indeed, and there is another article of a women being punched at 1am, again no doubt alcohol was involved.

A ban on alcohol would be an economic and social disaster. For the record, alcohol consumption has been declining steadily over the past decade and the greatest level of decline is I'm 18 to 24 year olds. The problem is not alcohol it is the irresponsibly relaxed attitude of the police and judiciary towards unsociable and disruptive behaviour.
Alcohol consumption and pub visitation is an important part of the British Culture but I can understand why certain groups have an interest in fragmenting it.

I think you are right, if the punishment of those individuals costing this country money due to alcohol abuse, was harsh, maybe we would see a decline of this type of behavior.

Alcohol consumption overall may be in decline but binge drinking especially over the festive season is pretty consistent. Having said that, as you said a ban on alcohol would be a disaster.
As for the police, they are spread rather thin on the ground as it is. They just don't have the manpower to investigate every incident to a satisfactory level yet people would complain if taxes were raised substantially to compensate for the lack in standards.
Society is in freefall and until people learn responsibility for their own actions this country shall remain an embarrassment.
