    Cardiff is apparently the binge drink capital of the UK, and they're bringing in new legislation that gives a minimum price of uh £1.70 for any alcoholic drink sold in bars or clubs in the city ... or something like that.

    Which now means no '£10 all you can drink' style nights, no cheap drinks at the union, no Drink The Bar Dry at the end of each term, no £1 a drink student nights etc ...

    I think it does, just not as much as is made out

    you very rarely get trouble in Aylesbury when I have been out, saying that, there was a programme before about trouble in Aylesbury Town Centre

    You just get a lot of drunken idiots

    Nottingham just seemed the same but on a larger scale, there was perhaps a bit more trouble.....

    Would the person who gave me bad rep on this post care to explain their reasoning?
