See thisislondon.co.uk/lite F RANKLY I dont care whos in power but be it Labour, or the Conservatives with their new plan to tax cheap booze and crack down on late licences, its time some- thing was done. Every weekend and increasingly on weekday evenings, too, I see teens too young to vote sprawling around the streets. So much police and A&E hospital time is drink-related. Theres an epidemic and we need a cure fast. Helen, Fulham Off-LICENCES need to be hit, and hit hard. A lot of them are completely irre- sponsible and bear a huge chunk of the blame for the situation as it is at the moment. Take their profits and theyll think twice about their policies. James Baker, Kent WE NEED targeted missiles to fight the war to save society. This smart bomb tax on cheap booze is the way forward. Number Six, London WE hAvE to ask why people want to get paralytic. foreign visitors are shocked by the British level of drunkenness. Tinkering around the edge of the problem will do absolutely nothing, and if the 24- hour drinking fiasco is anything to go by, can make it even worse. Tanya Evans, N14 TAxINg beer is one thing but it wont stop people find- ing cheap alcohol. We used to feel the same about smoking until we were made aware of the social burden and health outcomes. Shock advertising tactics are required. Rosie H, Surrey WhY punish the majority for the irresponsible minority? Theres no reason law-abiding folk shouldnt enjoy themselves. Louis, London LETS not fix social problems that make people binge drink, just tax eve- ryone more and then we can give the government more cash for wars. great idea. Amir, London WERE already taxed to the max. Soon the government will put a price on the air we breathe. Marty G, Southwark Textpoll Q: Will you vote for Cameron?
