No open container laws either, so after the pub closed it was walk around town with a beer in your hand.
So IMO licencing hours are not the problem, it's just that you start drinking at an age where you are not really mature enough to be sensible about it and of course it carries on into adulthood.

I know there were rumours about the open container thing even back then. thatcher was trying to ban open containers at one point but she was unsuccesfull then.

As a bouncer, this really is a great idea in regard to preventing fights and such.
Heaven forbid they pass this law in Austalia though we already drink too much!
I personally don't go out drinking alot anymore, much prefer quiet drinks over dinner or at home, plus it's cheaper. I can't imagine how expensive it would be in the UK, can someone advise ?

Now if someone works a graveyard shift, they can go out for a beer after work like the rest of us can.
After hours clubs/Night clubs were a little harder to get into under 18, but seeing as our dvrs licenses have no photo's we would just "share" someones ID who was of age...
