Binge Drinking in Broseley

! This post hasn't been updated in over a year. A lot can change in a year including my opinion and the amount of naughty words I use. There's a good chance that there's something in what's written below that someone will find objectionable. That's fine, if I tried to please everybody all of the time then I'd be a Lib Dem (remember them?) and I'm certainly not one of those. The point is, I'm not the kind of person to try and alter history in case I said something in the past that someone can use against me in the future but just remember that the person I was then isn't the person I am now nor the person I'll be in a year's time.

Went out to the inbreeding capital of Shropshire last night for a binge drinking session with Mrs Sane and a cabal of drunk women to celebrate her birthday.

Mrs Sane got predictably drunk. I’m thinking of buying some shares in Bailey’s to try and claw back some of her bar bill next time round. 😉

The Wine Bar was packed so we left there pretty sharpish (but not before having my first pint of Caffrey’s for years – why doesn’t anybody serve Caffrey’s any more?) and went up to the social club. The singer, Mark Anthony, was pretty good and the booze was really cheap. Which is lucky because we got through a fair bit.

I managed to drag Sir Bendy and his lady friend Jem out. I went to school with Sir Bendy and hadn’t seen him for about 8 years so it was good to catch up. I didn’t ask why he now calls himself Sir Bendy, I suspect some V1agra or C1alis would cure him but I didn’t like to pry. 😆

Well, Mrs Sane has finally risen from her pit at 10:15am and I’m off to Telford Town Park for a bit of protesting.

Some pictures from the night out …

    I think Caffreys was so successful that its mixed gas way of doing things was used by ‘normal british beer’ (it certainly happened to scottish beer) and the premium unusual way of doing things became the norm and it could not compete with cheap shit carpet stainer (Tartan special springs to mind as does Belhaven best)

    ‘Cos it’s shite. Try some of the better real ales around.
    Axel – Tartan, I’d just about expunged that crap from my memory! I can remember when lots of “Free House” pubs advertised that they sold it, as if it was some sort of recommendation to visit the place.

    Beware of Tartan, it is called something else now, re branded but it is still the same bad chemical shit it was then but now it is pumped through with mixed gas

    The protest went OK. Not many people turned up thinking that it was all done and dusted now Telford & Wrekin Council have apologised over the paedophile thing but the council still insist that anyone holding a protest or handing out leaflets in the Town Park must have a CRB check and as the Home Office said, they have no right to do this.

    Needless to say, none of us were CRB checked for the protest yesterday and nobody from the council came to bother us. There was a Police CSO on his bike nearby but he wasn’t interested in us. The council have also tried to stop people riding their bikes in the park so someone took a picture of the CSO on his. I was on my bike (not the best idea I had yesterday – it’s about a mile and a half there and it nearly crippled me!) and the CSO even kept an eye on it while I went in to the shop to get a drink.

    The Shropshire Star came and took some pictures and I’m quoted as saying “It’s about time the council figured out what they can and cannot do. They can’t force people to have Criminal Record Bureau checks to hand out leaflets”.

    There was a circus setting up in the park yesterday. How many of them have been CRB checked in line with the council’s spurious policy?
