Another new law on alcohol passed in Parliament

Other than the laughable law banning the sale of chewing gum, a new law has just been tabled to restrict the sale and consumption of alcohol in Singapore. The proposed ban is to restrict consumption of alcohol between 10.30pm and 7am, you can drink at licensed premises, which can include restaurants, coffee shops and bars. You can also drink at a private residence. You will not be able to drink at HDB void decks and corridors.

You will need a liquor consumption permit – on top of the NParks permit for a barbecue pit – to drink alcohol after 10.30pm. A permit is also required if you intend to consume liquor at an event or gathering at a HDB void deck or corridor beyond 10.30pm.

There are no restrictions on drinking at home, but retail sale hours for take-away liquor will also end at 10.30pm throughout Singapore.

More.

My favourite quote today

"I am afraid the cruise ship is over capacity limit, and it used to be a luxury cruise ship. The designer’s claim that it is not sinkable, the name is Titanic. There are not enough life boats, no preparation or provision for failure. Thank you Mr Goh for reminding us." - Low Thia Khiang

"Till today, I am still puzzled by why the PAP cannot fight a fair election without gerrymandering, abusing the GRC system, basically, making sure they enter into a boxing ring with an opponent who is expected to fight them with hands tied behind the back. There is a reason why bullies are not popular in schools. Why not be the school prefect?" - Alvinology

"The question to ask is what lies at the root of the discontent or the disengagement between the G and the people. I am going to stick my neck out and say that it is ministerial salaries. I consider it the root of all evil. Serious. It reduces what should be a social compact into a business contract. " - Bertha Henson
