The problem is not the shoes

So. In the latest attempt to make sure that no one ever has to be responsible for themselves ever, cops in the UK are now going to give drunk women flip flops to walk home in.

Look, if you're going out drinking in kick ass heels, you are making a conscious decision to have your feet hurt like hell by the end of the night. You also know that there's a very good chance you'll have to walk home barefoot if you don't want to fall over.  I generally made sure to carry a pair of flats with me, tucked down in the bottom of the bag, so that when the time came, I could change into something more appropriate.  If a girl (because these sure as hell aren't women) can't handle her heels and her liquor, she should give up both.

Brits putting together Volunteer Nanny Brigade speed traps

The police'll send you warnings if you get tagged by these rats, and can prosecute if your name comes up three times.  This effort to turn people against each other comes after local governments set up Volunteer Nanny Brigades to rat out people who didn't follow Airstrip One's various recycling and trash ordnances (like 96 year old war vets with poor vision, perhaps?).  I'm guessing that real reason they're doing this is that they're hoping that people are less likely to put gas filled tires around these particular speed traps.

Airstrip One council set to declare term "British" as offensive as racial slurs

And to think, this bullshit is here now.  We're going to have to fight like hell every step of the way to slow and stop this corrosive force, then reverse the damage done.  One more thing, why the hell are governments setting values of offense to spoken word?  Yes, that's rhetorical.
