    this was suggested on the thread about that cunt johnson banning having a quiet beer. but we should do it. if you build it they will come, and all that.

    how should we advertise it to get hundreds of people there?

    also, i'm thinking that perhaps requesting people to, whatever else they do, bring soft drinks in alcohol containers. make a mockery of the whole thing, IYSWIM.

    Better still bring Vodka in Evian bottles. I think to get the biggest crowd you need to take out an advert in the Evening Standard or perhaps the Metro. That way you will at least get a few hundred Transport Police turning up. ;)

    Sounds like a good idea to me!

    June 1st is a Sunday. Might be best waiting for the following Friday?

    That was my idea!

    Get it sorted though (I don't actually live in London) - I've currently got an enquiry into the Mayor's Office to establish the legality of drinking Shandy Bass on the tube too. That could be a laugh if everyone turns up with a slab of that and gets stuck in.

    Why can't you just accept that you can't drink on public transport like everybody else, everywhere else in the country has to.

    Why should London be a special case?

    Because London is a special case.

    I'm sure having a huge, noisy, intimidating drunken party is the best way to demonstrate that "banning having a quiet beer" is an intolerable restriction on people's freedoms.

    I think it's that Londoners think they're special cases. The rules don't apply to them.

    Forward to the atomised society! We owe our fellow citizens nothing!

    In many circumstances, particularly in relation to transport, yes it is.

    In this particular instance, I don't see how it is :confused:

    I can drink on planes too. Maybe they want to ban that too?

    selamlar is aware of the irony.

    Fuck that. I could never set foot on a plane again without alcohol to dull the terror of being so far up in the air.

    And there's not much point in flying business class if you can't get free alcohol.

    i.e. the airlines would never allow it!

    You can drink on the trains pretty much everywhere, and I see people drinking on buses all over the country.

    You can't drink your own booze on Planes. You also get a rather hefty fine for being drunk and disorderly on a plane.

    Ah, it's just that a lot of people like London for its tolerance and permissiveness. If we wanted to live in curtain-twitching, repressed and hypocritical places we'd move to the home counties. If a beer on the tube shocks a christian or a little old lady, then our job is done. :cool:

    Thank you for that wonderful example of the evil, uncivil attitudes that Mr Johnson is now working to overcome.

    I'll say one thing for you. You're a master deadpan comic. :D

    Hopefully he'll ban dour, sour old trouts like you soon. What awful event made you such a po-faced dullard?

    Bar service on the Tube? Excellent idea. :D

    Ban all puritans and their illiberal ways. Maybe we could put them on a boat and send them off somewhere - oh hang on, that didn't work out so well before. :D

    You do realise this sounds as silly as a group of teenagers hiding behind the bike shed during morning break trying to grab a crafty cigarette without being caught by teacher, because it's the 'grown up and rebellious' thing to be doing?

    The law is coming, there's nothing you can do about it except comply, or suffer the consequences.

    Outside of this forum, I haven't seen much comment otherwise against the ban.

    Sorry we can't be all grown up like you. We still like a bit of fun.
