Now to see:

- How it's implemented.
- Who's supposed to be enforcing it.
- Whether they do, or can.

I trust there will be no attempts to ban those!
Yet.
Then they'll ban water, because it could be gin or vodka in disguise.
And then they'll have a spate of heat exhaustion deaths on the tube in the summer ...

Mmmm vodka.

It does make me giggle when I see people carrying cans of beer wrapped in brown paper, as if that disguises them as soft drinks. Because obviously everyone carries cans of Coke wrapped in paper!

Easiest way to get around this would be to put beer in a starbucks mug. It's now culturely acceptable to carry coffee cups everywhere :)

And like you, i assumed drinking alcohol in public was illegal anyway...

I never assumed that, but certainly thought it was illegal on public transport, usually under local byelaws / conditions of carriage.
