Nanny State Update: Flip-Flops for Drunks

This story from Britain does, as Mark Steyn has noted, sound like an article from The Onion:

Drunk women who stagger about in high heels are to be protected - at public expense - from twisting their ankles.

They will be handed flip-flops to wear by police outside nightclubs as they wend their way home.
The scheme is part of a £30,000 drive by police and councillors to prevent 'alcohol-related harm'.
