Just another night in binge-drink Britain: Police cells fill with 'black eye Friday' fighters
Daily Mail ^ | 23 December 2012 | DAILY MAIL REPORTER

It is meant to be the season to be jolly - but Britain's towns and cities descended into chaos last night as binge-drinkers ditched festive spirit for mindless violence. On the day colloquially known as 'black eye Friday', police officers packed town centres on one of their busiest nights of the year. The last Friday before Christmas is traditionally a rowdy night due to the huge number of office parties taking place, the end of the academic term and workers being given Christmas bonuses.

Yep, jolly old England continues to sink in it’s own vomit, while it imports millions of tea-totaling muslims who can’t wait to takeover. What’s wrong with this picture? Plenty. Sad.

They are already doomed. Demographics is destiny.

Same stuff, different day:

“It’s getting late have you seen my mates
Ma tell me when the boys get here
It’s seven o’clock and I want to rock
Want to get a belly full of beer

My old man’s drunker than a barrel full of monkeys
And my old lady she don’t care
My sister looks cute in her braces and boots
A handful of grease in her hair

Don’t give us none of your aggravation
We had it with your discipline
Saturday night’s alright for fighting
Get a little action in

Get about as oiled as a diesel train
Gonna set this dance alight
‘Cause Saturday night’s the night I like
Saturday night’s alright, alright, alright

Well they’re packed pretty tight in here tonight
I’m looking for a dolly who’ll see me right
I may use a little muscle to get what I need
I may sink a little drink and shout out “She’s with me!”

A couple of the sounds that I really like
Are the sounds of a switchblade and a motorbike
I’m a juvenile product of the working class
Whose best friend floats in the bottom of a glass

Sir Elton.

Still a darn good song if my band de jour can pull it off.

So workers get Christmas bonuses and show their joy by picking fights.

Ain't got nuthin' on North American red necks (warning: satire and dirty language alert) If I Were A Red Neck

Nothing new about this. A great British night out, a pint and a fight.
