    Nay. Absolutely ludicrous. It won't do anything only create civil unrest.
    It will cause a level of unrest that is nowhere as high as the level of unrest seen when a certain Home Secretary tried to seize power by denying the Deputy Prime Minister his right to act as the Acting Prime Minister and when this particular individual tried to bring down Her Majesty's Government.

    Errr nope.

    The only damage I've ever caused from being drunk in public is a sign getting a little bit hurt (it hurt me more...)!

    ah get over it, this was months ago and has nothing to do with the bill in question, whereas Aph raises a valid point.

    Nay, I won't go into details as everyone else seems to have covered all the bases, so all I will say is this is truly ridiculous. You don't seem to realise how Orwellian this bill really is.

    I cannot support this. I agree with the intentions, but it is simply not practical.

    People should be able to do whatever they want, so long as it does not impede the freedoms of others. This bill proposes the total opposite. If a person gets very drunk, that is not a problem. As soon as they start becoming wild, violent or a public nuisance, they are committing offences that are already in existence.

    Hindering one's freedom, namely to become intoxicated in a public place, is simply a stance I cannot support.

    First of all, when did I say that I am a libertarian? Secondly, I do not oppose someone's right to get drunk if it is done privately, so it does not cause a nuisance to the general public. My bill also allows for people to have a few drinks and still be allowed to be in public. Under my bill, it is only illegal to be publicly intoxicated over a certain level (as stated in the bill). The level is set, since many people will start acting irrationally over that level, so my bill helps protect people from irrational drunks.
    Your party as I understand it believes in the principle of a smaller state.

    My first ever bill of my MHoC career was a bill that abolished the UK and handed our entire sovereignty to teh EU. it wasn't well liked.
    I'm not sure what's more worrying - that you thought that was a good idea, or the fact that you thought it even had a chance of passing in the House...

    My backup plan involves New Zealand, Australia, Switzerland, Iceland or Russia in the order of preference. Hong Kong would be alright as well but I'm too lazy to learn Chinese.

    I'd probably go Cuba, most are English speaking as their education system is very good.

    Well sitting in the sun drinking Pina Coladas with gorgeous cuban birds wrapped around my arms seems about as likely as a USE forming in my lifetime so I'm sticking with Cuba.
