Drunken convictions fall by 75%………………….

Posted on September 21, 2009


New figures released today show that the number of those convicted of or receiving a police caution for drunkenness has slumped by more 75% in the last 30 years.

So what looks like a good news story on alcohol, drunken convictions down by 75%………sounds like good news right? Ermmm, actually no if the Daily Mail is to be believed.
Apparently nothing to do with changing habits in alcohol use and longer opening hours leading to more relaxed drinking….nope, it’s all because the police have gone soft and letting drunken yobs (apart from in Newcastle obviously) maraud the streets without out so much as a slap on the wrist.

There’s no pleasing some people!!
