In other news, English alcohol licensing laws change today, which means pubs and clubs can open much later (morbidly enough, on the same day George Best is going to die from alcohol abuse).
I happen to live three houses down from a drinking establishment of less than shining repute; I’ll be interested to see how much trouble we get in the neighbourhood. It’s distinctly unfortunate that this coordinated with disco and karaoke night; the biggest fallout will be people singing Hey Baby at the tops of their voices at 1am, and my consequent inability to get it out of my head the next day at work. Bah.
All this said, I’m not against the change in the law: I expect everything will settle down in a couple of weeks and we’ll all go on as when pubs shut at 11. No big deal.
