Petrol stations should be banned from selling alcohol, the head of a Garda watchdog said yesterday.
“I don’t think garages should be allowed to sell alcohol, merely on the perception grounds.
“You are permitting people who are attached to garages where cars go for petrol to sell drink to the people who are driving those cars. I think the perception of that must raise queries in any ordinary person’s mind,” he said.
I have no fucking idea where to start on this one. Perception grounds? That's the bit beside the forecourt, is it? And who are these people who are attached to garages? How are they getting home at night? Do they take the garage with them? What if it's a twenty four hour garage? Is there nothing we won't force our new working in petrol station immigant friends to do?
And 'I think the perception of that must raise queries in any ordinary person's mind.'
Am I an ordinary person? Because the queries in my mind are a)The fuck does that even mean? b)Can I buy a fucking sentence? and c)Could you possibly just fuck off?
People drive to off licences too, you stupid, stupid, busybodying, fuck all else to be doing cunt. Christ.
You want to do something about excessive/underage/driving drinking? Put checkpoints outside suburban pubs on a Friday and Saturday night. Ban all drink related advertising. (Including those ones warning against drinking too much. They make me want to get fucking sloshed.) Legalise the smokey jokey.
Woo hoo! It's another one of Gimme's ill thought-out, naive and unworkable solutions to the country's problems. Keep setting them up, Gordon Holmes of the GSCB, and I'll keep knocking them down.
What are they doing in heaven today?
