The Booze Blitz

Posted on: December 11, 2009

Legislation to change free medical to a user pays system and billing for all the consequences of self inflicted booze and drugs is long overdue – why should folks at home in bed pay for all that fun? Just think for a moment that if the cost of police, ambulance, and hospital casualty intervention had to be paid for in 7 days, it would be a more powerful no cost deterrent to such social sabotage. Similarly the damage to property, to third parties and sadly, the innocents.

Millions spent by Government over the years, more police and more jails and failure to collect over $174 million in unpaid fines from over 500,000 social delinquents in SA alone clearly shows that education programmes, blitzes like this one and increased taxation fail.

Does National Service become an alternative for youth? Border Patrols in the North West offer the chance to again bond the young to each other and ultimately to the Nation instead of the harrowing risks on the streets and the destruction of family life.
