Time to say bye to 'cafe culture', fostering and Mark McGhee's Name Game!
The Violence Reduction Unit (VRU) has said there is an "over provision" of off-licences and bars in towns and cities. It's called for the police to be given a bigger role in licensing decisions and said those who commit acts of violence under the influence should have their "right to drink" taken away. Acting Director of the VRU Will Linden said Scotland could not hope to import a "café culture" from continental Europe due to long-established problems with alcohol.
Is it time to say goodbye to 'café culture'? Are there too many pubs, clubs and off-licences in Scotland?

Would you welcome gender-neutral school uniforms?
