Serving up some shame may help
THE photographs of NEW Year's Eve revellers on Wind Street have now been seen by a wide national audience.
In one sense there is comfort to be gleaned from the fact the scenes were no worse than those in the pub quarters of most British cities.
South Wales Police made fewer arrests than in previous years so they view the holiday season as relatively quiet. But it is still shocking for people who do not frequent Wind Street to see the kind of states revellers get themselves into.
Many agencies work together to minimise the harm party-goers do to themselves and each other and get little thanks for it.
Limiting the number of licensed premises in the city centre might help. But pubs and clubs refusing to serve people who have had too much to drink would have a greater impact.
And maybe similar photographs should be taken every weekend to serve up a little shame with that hangover.
