Drunkness vs drinking.

Drinking alcohol is now banned on the Tube.

Is this against drunk people on the Tube? It would be if drunk people were drinking. But it seems to me that if you're drunk you're unpleasant on the Tube much more than someone not drunk who's drinking.

So the real thing that is annoying is drunken behaviour on public transport, and not drinking.

The bottom line is it's easier to ban alcohol than to ban "drunken behaviour".

The only people who are really going to mind this new rule are the people who are/will be drunk anyway :P.
