    It's not illegal to drink at home once you are over 5 anyway, so if it's a takeaway that you eat at home...

    Otherwise it's 16 and a table meal in a licensed premises.

    Who on Earth would actually agree to the drinking age being lowered apart from kids who think drinking is cool?

    Me.

    We obviously have a drinking problem in Britain, we should try and normalise alcohol a lot more. Lowering the drinking age is one way we can achieve this.

    Harsher laws/restrictions on alcohol is not going to solve our drinking problem. Look at how the war on drugs is turning out.

    I would also legalise most drugs and then regulate them.

    if you reduce the drinking age, then clubs will reduce the entry age,

    then clubs wont have 16 yr olds passing for 18 yr olds with fake i.d. you will have 14 hr olds passing as 16 yr olds with fake i. d. s

    18 is quite early enough.
