Is this what the world has come to free flip flops? Police in Britain will be carrying bags of uni-sex thongs / flip flops to hand out to drunk woman in stilettos. The footwear is part of a $70,000 publicly funded project to prevent “alcohol-related harm” coming to people wearing inappropriate shoes.In particular the blue thongs will come in handy for women attending hens nights, who after a hard night of drinking are at risk of hurting themselves by either tripping up in high heels or cutting themselves when walking barefooted. Evidently the blue flip flop idea was prompted by fears that women could twist or sprain their ankles on the way home after a night out (and we should care why?). Hmm, shouldn’t they be more concerned about them being stabbed, raped or murdered now they have a blue flip flop indicator telling would be predators “drunk woman”? Because lets face it, you would have to be totally pissed to wear blue flip flops with anti drinking messages printed all over them. The scheme will begin in Torquay Devon. AND no I am not friggin making this up! For goodness sakes, it’s true. Matthew Elliott, chief executive of the TaxPayers’ Alliance, said “People don’t pay their taxes for drunk women to get free flip-flops.”
