FROM THE NEWS DESK
Alcohol, or at least abuse of alcohol, has featured in our pages with disturbing regularity in the last few weeks.
From large numbers of drink drivers, to uncontrolled parties in public places and behaviour of people at public events - there has been plenty to be appalled at.
It has sparked a conversation in our office. Should we place further restrictions on alcohol? A zero tolerance to driving after drinking? Liquor bans? Alcoholfree events?
I am unsure whether this is the right answer. And I’m quite fond of the odd glass of wine so I don’t really want to see more restrictions. But if people can’t control their drinking, if they insist on becoming indecent humans or putting themselves and others in danger, then maybe as a society we do need to front up and look for some solutions.
