"Responsible drinking in local pubs has been a cornerstone of British society for centuries. Binge drinkers who wreak havoc should be targeted when they harm the well being of others, and cost taxpayers billions, but a proportionate response is the best way forward."
That the (noble?) drinking traditions which form the "cornerstone" of this wastrel western society are even mentioned in a sentence that goes on to admit its alcoholism problems are costing its treasury billions and 'wreaking havoc' across the land only proves this society needs to give its young citizens... a reason to live!
