You'd be surprised to what extent getting trashed on Christmas Eve is a purely Anglo-Saxon phenomenon.
Also this is the most idiotic policy I have ever heard. How is LIMITING spending supposed to mitigage a recession?
EDIT: Woops, didn't read the bit about "public sector". In that case what's the big deal?
If I've read that right, he's saying that organisations run on public money won't be allowed to give their staff free booze and presents at Christmas, because money is tight and it would be a waste.
I don't see the problem?
I always have amazing Christmases and I don't feel the need to drink a lot of alcohol during that period to enjoy it.
Hmm, they haven't really "banned parties" - just ruled against using public-sector money to fund them.
its in the public sector so it isnt bad
I thought this thread was going to be a rant at muslims.....
Anna Edwards, you are an idiot.
Anna you really are a spanner!
I love croatia especially their bars.
Under 18's allowed in, allowed to drink etc etc and yet you have non of the trouble that you get over here
