This would mean that people would not be allowed to drink on trains, buses and domestic flights.
Nanny feels that such a ban would lessen the number of drink fuelled incidents on the transport network.
Clearly this is another one of Nanny's headline grabbing "initiatives", which has not been thought through at all.
- The majority of drink fuelled incidents are caused by people who are "boozed" up before entering the trains and buses, banning drink on board would have no effect whatsoever.
- Banning booze because of the behaviour of a minority of moronic scumbags punishes the majority of well behaved people. Yet again the freedoms of the citizens of Britain are being eroded on the pretext of the "threat" posed by a minority, in this case the minority being moronic scumbags.
- Having a drink is sometimes the only way to make the ordeal of traveling on our decaying and overcrowded public transport system bearable.
