Demon drink

• So the country is shocked at what its youth gets up to when they gather to drink at a music festival. Spare me. Go to any town on a weekend night.

The people who fall out of the pubs, go home with strangers and get involved in fights are the same people who are now ringing 'Liveline' to complain about the young people. What do you think happens at every other music festival? Those adults don't go to listen to music -- they go to get drunk.

Can we please accept that the alcoholism in this country is almost beyond fixing at this stage and that no amount of 'shocking scenes of drunk and disorderly youth' will stir anybody to change anything?
