No More Lunch-Time Binge Drinking

Britain is finally abolishing its 90-year-old licensing laws mandating that bars close at 11 pm. Good riddance – I spent a year in England as an undergraduate, and those laws were the bane of my existence. To get around the laws’ effects, all the kids at my school would start drinking around lunchtime and then buy three or four drinks each at last call. These condescending restrictions resulted in much more binge drinking than I’ve ever seen in any country that has normal licensing laws.

(Russia, naturally, was an exception)
