the most ridiculous new item of the week

  • councillors in County Kerry, in the south west Ireland have decided to tackle a pressing social issue
  • apparently younger generations are being culturally deprived of traditional song and dance as older folk in isolated areas are no longer visiting the pubs due to a crackdown on driving under the influence
  • the councillors, many of whom are pub owners are suggesting that police issue drinking permits that allow older people to legally get behind the wheel after imbibing a few drinks
  • the motion was passed by the council and they are actually attempting to get this approved as a law
  • and why not? It seems perfectly reasonable in comparison to other ridiculous ideas such as offering a selection of non-alcoholic beverages, arranging local transport for a nominal fee or free soft drinks for a designated driver
