Captions of the Week


The Guardian seems to have some legal fear of using the word “arrest.” These are the captions they used in a story about the, um, Final Piss-Up on the London Underground. Am I just getting old and surly or was there never a better justification for a law going into effect?


“A partygoer is accompanied by police”


“Police assist a reveller on a Circle line platform”

More pictures of pissed-up plonkers here.

    Presumably they can’t announce that someone has been arrested if they haven’t. The risk of a payout is too high. Chances are the coppers are just holding the drunkards’ hair while they evacuate themselves.
    You are getting old and surly, because as was widely reported most of these drunks were getting lashed on the tube for the first and last time. Drunks on public transport are hardly a menace. Most of the people I see drinking on trains are Polish plumbers sinking a can of beer after work- hardly a menace. And now the twenty first century won’t have its ‘Born Skinny’. I hate that Tory turd even more now.
