You cant cure a cancer by changing the sticking plaster. You have to cut it out and clean the wound. We need similar action here to save our cities. Judith C, London If BArS and clubs shut at midnight instead of staying open until 3am, people would have fewer drinks and we wouldnt have as many drunk people on the streets. Its really very simple. Ayyaz, London ALCOHOL should be classified as the dan- gerous drug i t i s . I t causes huge damage but is somehow immune from the classification awarded other substances. Kev, London INCrEASE the price of drink after 9pm in pubs and clubs. Treble the cost and youd soon see a reduction in street trouble.
