Telling us what to do
In true Newsbeat style, they used a series of clips of members of the public giving their opinion. One of them said something along the lines of 'They can't tell people what they can and can't do'.
Two things got me wound up:
1) No one is telling anyone not to do anything. Forbidding something, and advice to not to something, are two very different things.
2) Having two alcohol-free days is completely sensible! It's not like it's hard-going, not touching booze for those two days, is it*?
It strikes me that some people just don't like authority, even when the voice of authority displays a little common-sense.
*I realise that for those addicted to alcohol, this is entirely the case, but I'll negate them for the purposes of this discussion.
