Re: Sounds like a night out in this hack's often less than fair city of Brighton
I take a fence at the Glasgow remark. Been enjoying libations for many a year in that city without incident.
On the other hand, when I lived in Bristol, I witnessed fights, stabbings and had to sit on someone once who had been accused of rape until he was removed by Plod (turned out be a spurned lover and a bit of a tiff). I had the misfortune of working in the city centre briefly in a nightshift role next to the Bear Pit, and heading in there was taking your life in your own hands.
