Can you place this into context?

Intoxication is not a defence per se but could be used to show that the defendant was that drunk it was impossible to form the mens rea that was needed at the commission of the alleged offence. Practically, you would plead the best defence thus giving you the best chance to either be acquitted or the least sentence possible.
