Banning Beer Glasses in Pubs
Not beer, just the glasses:
The Home Office has commissioned a new design, in an attempt to stop glasses being used as weapons.
Official figures show 5,500 people are attacked with glasses and bottles every year in England and Wales.
The British Beer and Pub Association said it did not want the new plastic glasses to be made compulsory.
I don't think this will go anywhere, but the sheer idiocy is impressive. Reminds me of the call to ban pointy knives. That recommendation also came out of the UK. What's going on over there?
