Pint Plan is Potty

Public Safety is the supposed reason for the Home Office looking to replace pint glasses with something more plastic.

It is all to do with cutting down on the number of ‘glassing’ incidents. Glassing is vicious, but once again we get expensive government proposals that treat the vast majority of people as being guilty of crime they have never committed and never would commit.

Where there are troublesome pubs, it is the role of the police, landlords and owners to assess whether the glasses need changing. But the idea, for example, that Cambridge CAMRA [Campaign for Real Ale] pub locals are out for a fight, is nonsense. If the Home Office busybodies care to stop by, the most they’ll get is a bent ear.
