Thanks Spencer,that's an interesting point. However do you think it's likely that it would be students themselves that would call for reform?

That's interesting. I didn't know about the alcohol laws in the UK. I'm from the US, and I've been interested in alcohol problems and laws in the university system. There's a lot of cases of schools liberally allowing underage drinking and alcohol on campus. Some universities even have deals with local police forces (depending on the schools size) to not bust on campus parties. It's becoming a major problem that's not getting nearly enough attention. I hope that more university age students will get behind a better system in order to end the excess.
