    I read the U.K. government commissioned a shatter-proof beer glass to help lower the costs associated with pub fights.

    The Brits love beer and they guzzle 126 million pints a week.......wowsers!

    The result is a large amount of drunken violence. Every year close to 90,000 people are injured with a beer glass. The cost in health care amounts to more than $200 million.

    The British government commissioned a designer to come up with a shatterproof pint glass with a coating of bio-resin.I wonder if this is the answer........:SNOW_B117:

    If you knew what you were talking about Seaman63, that might have been slightly amusing.
    However, my post is about our government, who have become totally incapable of running a bath, never mind a country. This "New Labour" government is nothing more than a watered down Thatcherite Tory party who have lost the plot. I think most nations on our planet enjoy alcohol, but a few countries have the binge drinking syndrome, including the UK.
    We've had this problem for years together with the drunken violence, so to combat the problem, what does our government do? Put the drinking age up to 21? Shorten the opening times of pubs and bars? Take away the licences from corner shops and supermarkets?
    No. They introduce 24 hour drinking and allow supermarkets to sell booze AT A LOSS, just to get customers in. Night clubs are also allowed to promote "drink all you can" nights so long as you've paid your entrance fee.
    So Mick114, all the plastic glass idea will do is create another waste mountain of stuff which we cant get rid of, and they'll have to invest millions of tax payers pounds to build recycling plants, coz the UK is already one gigantic landfill site as it is. The drunken fights and domestic violence will still go on, maybe escalate, and it'll be down to our already over-stretched police and hospital services to sort out the mess.

    I know what I´m talking about Thrap, be sure.

    However, I think the problem can not be solved by shatter-proof beer glasses. Here in Germany they stopped selling alcohol from 10pm through the night at corner shops, fuel stations and supermarkets, and guess what..nothing changed.

    Also, those all you can drink flatrates are forbidden here - nothing changed.

    People are getting more and more violent, I guess it has to do with big frustrations because life is getting harder due the economical situation. And I feel a big loss of morality these days.
