Why do the BLOODY pubs stay open so late, there was nothing like this when they closed at 11.0pm, since they changed the licencing hours things have got out of hand, there is far more violence, but the power that be can't see this, as usual brains in backside.

Alcohol has nothing to do with it. Millions of people enjoy a drink every week without resorting to violence.
Stupidity comes in many forms, if alcohol is involved or not, you can't compensate for ends bell 《《

It was only 00.35. There is no more violence now than before. In fact I'd say the 90's were worse. Then, you had unlicenced bouncers that used to wind up punters added to the mix. I see fewer bar fights nowadays people go out later and come home later so there's no real difference. 11 oclock cerfew was draconian and it would do nothing to bring it back.

Funny how some people are to quick to judge by just reading something! Seems like none of you actually knew what happened.

Get well soon dude! 😘
