is it happening more, or is it just more widely reported and readily available to the public?

The new songs are an abomination

...what is happening to Britain?

I didn't realise this happened in every corner of Britain! Blackpool seems to be one of the worst offending areas these days, I certainly wouldn't want to live there, however, I think it's a bit unfair to tarnish the whole place.

In any country in the world there are things like this happening far too often, it's not just here.

Also, what Jonners said...

Does anyone still feel proud of being British?
Yes.

And if you were man enough to live here I'd feckin' well smash you in the face for being so dismissive of Britain

Well. Over here in Norn Iron the street violence levels have plummetted. There's still some inadvisable places to be at certain times late at the weekend but by and large i'd say violent crime is dramatically down here. Having said that, street mellee's would probably seem fairly trivial to me after The Troubles.

everythings hunky dory then. Must be me getting the wrong end of the stick as usual.

And silly me thought maybe people were just turning a blind (and blackened) eye to it.

Isn't Blackpool one of the stag night main centres of Britain ?

No excuse but maybe the reason why places like Amsterdam have banned British stag nights ?

This has been going on for years.

I went to Blackpool with a football team I was involved with in 1988. On the Friday night, we came out of a club to be confronted by about 30-40 local morons (there was about a dozen of us). We ended up getting lumps. One mate had a beer bottle broken over his head and had to have stitches, while another was kicked unconcious in a doorway and had to spend the entire weekend in hospital.

The taxi driver taking us back to the hotel told us it was a regular occurance. A guy from Manchester had been stabbed to death the previous weekend, but it was kept out of the national press because it would've damaged the tourism industry.

Blackpool is a shithole.

It might be Lancashire's top seaside resort, but it just ain't my cup to tea


From first to last. The peak is never passed. Something always fires the light that gets in your eyes

You can walk down the street in ANY town in the UK and see mindless knobs acting like twats....... I'm embarrassed by the crass, violent yob culture that has erupted in recent years..... In my opinion we need to give the Police back their nuts and hand out meaningful penalties to those that are intent on injuring or maiming others...........

Don't get me started on that shower of c***s!!! Spend millions on nice cosy new prisons and upholding the HUMAN RIGHTS of those who seek to abuse our society....... Our Government stopped representing me in around July 1997............! How about sticking up for us lot? We pay your wages you tits!!!!

Gordon Brown has the fiscal knowledge and skills of the average Gamblers Anonymous member and has driven a huge steamy cock of utter stupidity up the jacksy of this country..... invented about 800,000 non-jobs in Central, Regional and Local Government to massage the jobless figures and get people 'off benefits' whilst actually making it nigh on impossible for anyone ON benefits to get a proper job because they simply cannot afford their bills without the state handouts!!!

If Gordon Brown had to stand up as Chairman of UK Plc at an annual meeting and deliver the Annual Report he would get lynched..... he's the biggest numpty ever to sit in No. 10. At least BLIAR had a personality of sorts and at least appeared somewhat inteligent!!!!

Don't even mention his selling TONS AND TONS of our GOLD at Lidl prices when it's now trading in Fortnum & Mason... Dour, slack-jawed, washed out, underqualified TWAT!!!

....................... sorry..... RANT OVER!!!

Why did I know that was coming.

I`m sorry but don`t you realise how lame it is to blame the government when it suits for the actions of these individuals?
