Statutory Drinking Licence UK

Its a real shame the UK still does not have a national identity card system-

A huge problem in every city centre late night shopping area and public spaces is the amout of binge drinking by youths.

The ID chip on the card can provide a a partition for your Statutory Drinking Licence -

If you wish to enter a Licenced Premises you must swipe your card to gain entry.

To Purchase Any Alcohol The
Statutory Drinking Licence Card must be swiped at Point Of Sale:

Age 14 Provisional Licence - Personal Use Only
Age 18 20 min formal Test & issued DRINKING LICENCE
Age 21 Advanced Licence (Licensees, Trading, Bulk Bulk buyer).

Drunk and Disorderly automatically loose licence 3 months (Can be imposed on the spot by police officer).
Any Provisional Licence holder found guilty of a drink related crime Licence revoked until 18th birthday
Any licence holder selling alcohol to a Non-Licence holder will pay a statutory fine PLUS loose Drinking Licence for a fixed period set by the court.

Treat people like adults they will behave like it.
