Hung over in London

Monday, June 2, 2008 at 5:15 | Posted in Alcohol, great britain, Uncategorized | 2 Comments

Thousands of Londoners apparently had a heavy party during the weekend. There is no doubt something very British about organizing a binge drinking party to celebrate the introduction of an alcohol ban in the underground. One might ask, though, if it was worth the hangover and indeed if any point at all was made and if so, was there any point in it?

  1. Interesting. I didn’t even know it was OK to drink in the London underground before. Generally in public transport around the world, drinking isn’t tolerated. I like order on public transport. A few weeks ago I was in NYC metro and a guy (apparently some homeless/bum) was sleeping on the chair and taking up space and being nasty. Soon, police came in the train and took him out.

  2. Mayor Johnson is delivering his electoral promises. Got to give him credit for that.

    My view is that it is OK to quietly sip a beer if you can do it without disturbing anybody. I do that occasionally on trains and buses. As long as it stays neat, what is the difference between drinking beer or drinking water?

    On the other hand, if I wanted to get really stoned, I would not specifically go to a subway train to do so, not even if it was allowed for the last night. There are so many places to get drunk in without upsetting other people that I would rather leave the trains for those who just want to get somewhere. A party like the one in London on Saturday is just bound to end up in a disaster.
