degradationDenbighshire County Council has an ambivalent attitude towards alcohol. The council tut-tuts at all the harm and havoc caused by the stuff but last Christmas helped to organise a pub crawl round villages, and recently postponed a ban on pubs which had been caught selling alcohol to children, and now has become involved in giving awards to licensed premises.

I hope that some time in the future Denbighshire (or its successor authority) would be brave enough to consider acquiring the public support and the powers to turn Rhyl into the first dry (no alcohol on sale) resort in the UK. Then it would become the safest place to live in or visit. Civilized families would flock in from far and wide and the basket cases and bingers would flock out.
