    And what is your opinion/takeout from these facts and this report? Do you have one? You post a lot of info up on these forums without offering any opinion or input of your own.

    I am sure your opinion is valid, so let's hear it.

    No surprise. My wife ticked off a guy for flytipping on our road and was told "fuck off, you're not even English." More of that to come.

    Poxpark's lawyers obviously 'saw them coming' and realised they had a pretty think client that could be milked. This bit of the reply genuinely made me lol...

    Just replied on the boozepark thread. To think their lawyers will probably be spending public money on lawyers take this action against the claims!

    you think fascists should have time on the streets with no opposition?
    or are you talking about canvassers?

    I went to Boxpark yesterday and it was really shit. Other parts might be ok, but the people I work with had arranged to meet in the Box bar which is particularly shit. They don't take cash, drinks in puny plastic glasses, loads of security people everywhere, and a number of silly rules and regulations. I had issues with the music too, but thiss is more to do with my age and I'm not part of their demographic.

    I will try some other outlets and give them a chance, but will definitely be avoiding the Box bar.

    I agree on every level. I gave it three shots but Ive definitely given up. It's shit, expensive, loud, unwelcoming, wasteful, is running local business into the ground and the owners have been acting like cunts.
