Why do young women drink themselves to oblivion every night across Britain?
Daily Mail Online ^ | 11-09-10 | Laura Powell

Posted on 10/10/2011 9:08:08 AM PDT by Lazlo in PA

Midnight on St Mary Street in Cardiff and everything is exactly as expected. Half a dozen young women slump in a gutter, men urinate outside a health-food shop and, as hordes stagger between nightclubs, someone lifts up a blow-up doll with a sex toy protruding out of it.

The street smells of urine and lager, police struggle to break up a fight outside the Walkabout bar and a paramedic bundles a comatose girl on to a wheelchair. But it's a quiet night for 20-year-old Naomi Jenkins. She has 'only' drunk three shots of peach schnapps, cider and three shots of Jagermeister (during a drinking game called I Have Never) and still feels 'a bit sober'. Her friend Hannah Freeman, 19, was punched in a fight and stumbles about swearing and searching for a bathroom.

'We only do embarrassing things when we're really drunk,' Naomi says. 'I kiss random men in the street and Hannah has had sex behind a chicken coop.' She screams with laughter as Hannah lurches unsteadily in the stairwell of Charleston Bar and Grill on Caroline Street (known locally as Chip Alley) and unashamedly urinates in front of us.

I have seen these stories increase over the years. Things are spiralling down hill fast over there with this bing drinking. They tried to push back the closing of the bar later thinking people were tanking up fast before the close of the bar, but it doesn't seem to have had an effect. The pictures in the article really sum up how crazy it is over there.

It is happening in Japan, too, particularly in Tokyo, in such nightlife/drinking districts as Shibuya and Kabukicho (Shinjuku). So it is worldwide in intensity. 20-25 years ago, unfathomable (at least for unescorted girls). How about other countries? Our youth are being lost. There seems to be a dark pall globally growing over the young people of the world in so many cases, though many great and upstanding ones remain. I think "happiness" is held out as an empty prommise by "The Evil One" in many of these cases, and people just fall like dupes to the oldest lies in the world. Certainly there is no happiness in this. Poor soul lying there on the sidewalk.

One explanation might be they are on downers for not being able to snag William before Kate did.

My bet is the Misery Index and lack of Christianity in GB has much to do with this.

Actually it's the Total Depravity of Man (and Women are included in that). The Depravity of Man is increasing world wide. I've seen women like this on shows like COPS and CAMPUS PD, drunk and vulnerable to rape and VDs (and worse).

Our societies should be screaming for women not to put themselves in positions like these, but instead are promoting it (and licentiousness) and homosexuality to the destruction of Holy Matrimony and the Nuclear family (one man married to one woman under God).

It's going to get really bad unless repentance is granted. The freedoms we have known and take for granted can quickly vanish. And the free societies we have known be changed into Totalitarian ones sooner than we think.

God can grant that to restrain lawlessness and has done so in the past. If He doesn't, perhaps the time of Jacob's Trouble is afoot and unless He restrains that "Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved" says the Lord Jesus Christ himself in Matthew 24:22 (repeated in Mark 13:20).

So the choice is stark.

It is not because they face the prospect of marrying a traditional British man. It is because the prospects of them marrying ANY traditional man are certainly dashed. Meanwhile, the prospect of them becoming subject to the will and misogyny of Arab or Muslim men is on the ever-increasing rise

In socialized Europe you do not have to work, you get decent money from the gov’t and you can party all night long.

Liberals love this. It is the ultimate form of “Bread and Circuses”.

Why rise up against the islamification of your country?
Why rise up against the floundering economy?
Why rise up against the political corruption?

You have money and get to party all night long.

Success and wealth is evil and only comes to those who take advantage of others.

I started to watch Prohibition and wondered why it was the men who got s-faced and the women led the effort to ban alcohol. Maybe we should figure out why men think it is manly to pass out. Maybe it is just an attention getter when they have accomplished nothing else.

Probably guys are treating them to the drinks. That’s how it worked in my day (although I’m not comparing myself to these kids). I’m probably wrong about this (Great Britain being a stingy kinda place) but maybe the pubs offer the women discounted drinks to lure in the lager louts.

Drinking is not cheap in the UK!

Nothing is cheap in the UK.

I don’t think there is a singular cause of what ails the UK. Well, wait, let me rephrase that there is – leftism. There are so many different variables at work here. The rampant promiscuity young women feel expected to engage in, the complete lack of striving for anything, the disappearance of the family structure and the spiritual vacuum all come to mind.

Brits long for the days of cheap gin again. Socialism and the cultural revolution are providing the poverty of the good ol’ days, and the people need their booze. It’s an old story that is repeating itself.
