I'm sure Boris Johnson will be cheering last nights celebrations. He does 'believe in liberty' after all.

Also it's interesting to see that the ban focused a couple of months worth of incidents into one night. Well done Boris.

Oppose bans on public drinking

The new London major's first act was to ban drinking on the Tube. As spiked's Brendan O'Neill points out, one's attitude towards public drinking has long been a test of libertarian spirit. The Manifesto Club supports all those – and there have not been many – who have raised a protest against public drinking bans. These include the organisers of this Circle Line Party against the Tube drinking ban, and David Shariatmadari on Comment is Free; and this petition from the publicans and patrons of Soho, who call on the PM to ‘resist a ban on drinking outside and maintain the liberal culture of Soho’. See also Dolan Cummings' comment against the booze ban in the Manifesto Club Members' Room.

Isn't Boris's friend and now employee Munira Mirza a founder member of the, 'Manifesto Club' ?

And aren't both Brendan O'Neill and Munira Mirza from 'Spiked'?

Boris should heartily approve of the night's carousing. The raisons d'ĂȘtre of the Bullingdon Club are hedonism, excessive boozing and wanton destruction. Or is it not pukka if one's not wearing the regulation £3 000 uniform and vomiting pure Pol Roger?
