Fresh from some Scottish licensing lunacy, the UK Government is set to introduce plastic pint glasses. How about just adding a requirement for a bib.
The government's idea is that by introducing shatter-proof plastic vessels it will help address the increasing problem of beer drinkers using pint glasses as weapons in their local pubs.
Needless to say the plan has gone down about as well as a warm beer served, well, in a plastic cup.
Making everyone suffer for the sins of a few is nutty public policy.
