(Daily Star)   Nottingham plagued by drunken youngsters on Carnage night, sporting short skirts, thongs, bargain booze, and vomit everywhere as part of "Playboys vs Bunnies." Sounds like that town needs a sheriff   (dailystar.co.uk ) divider line

It's Nottingham. Why don't they just head down to Warhammer World and enjoy a pint at Bugman's? Some people don't know when they have it good.

At least there wasn't a damn human statue.

If we don't come down hard on these clowns, we are going to be up to our *balls* in jugglers!

Yarp!

Cymbal: That's what happens when you are truly repressed. You drink to lose control. Many Americans are just as bad.


When you say repressed, do you mean always and forever a stick in the mud, or are you still repressed if you've had a few minor adventures that you don't want anyone other than the participants to know about (even if it's been many years)?

I actually mean repression of one's most basic drives and desires: sex, creation, destruction. If you don't have a regular and healthy outlet for what drives you, then that drive builds and eventually explodes, usually involving something unhealthy like drinking so much you completely lose control.

FarkinNortherner: Mr. Shabooboo: Don't they have drunk tanks at the police stations? People aren't really arrested, but they haul them in and dump them in a room to sober up and send them home?

No, in England and Wales* to be detained in a cell you would have to be arrested**. Although being drunk in a public place is illegal, arrests are almost always made for being drunk and disorderly or for public order offences.

It used to be the case that being so drunk you pass out in the street could result in arrest, but this is now very uncommon. Treatment in a place of safety is the more frequent response. Not entirely surprisingly, medical practitioners are less than delighted that hospital waiting rooms get used as drunk tanks so some cities have 'alcohol recovery centres' where the very drunk can be treated and kept safe.

London has 'booze buses', multi-person ambulances which provide sub-emergency medical care on-site to the very drunk. These operate in the West End three nights a week. The police can take you to a booze bus or ARC, and you'd be very foolish to refuse to go, but neither is a place of detention.

*Scotland and NI are different
**with some caveats, irrelevant in this instance


Very interesting... I learned something new today...
