Did you have a nice Christmas and New Year?
Did you go down the pub, and sink a few?
Maybe you are thinking of popping down to the boozer tonight, for a quick one?
Well, have a care!
It seems that Nanny is sending her spies into the ordinary local, in order to keep an eye on how much we are drinking.
In Blackpool recently, Nanny's police piloted a scheme whereby undercover officers spied on patrons and bar staff.
The spying was not just for information gathering purposes re drinking habits etc, which would be bad enough, but in order to issue fines.
It seems that two bar staff were fined for serving drunk customers.
Please note that this is a pilot scheme, this means that it will be rolled out to a boozer near you in the near future.
So, the question is, what constitutes "drunk" in Nanny's eyes?
-Falling flat on your face?
-Walking in a wobbly line?
-Speaking loudly about how you hate the state?
-Would Nanny care to provide us with a definition of "drunk"?
Nice to see that the police in Blackpool have nothing better to do!
