Confirmation that our licensing laws are superior to the rest of the UK no doubt.

Ironic considering it's in it's death throes nai

The criteria seemed to be more weighted towards safety and not things like choice, flexibilty or diversity

Yeah, havta commend them for the very safe practice of kicking everyone out onto the street at once.. Perfect way to avoid crowd trouble/violence whist also making sure there's a taxi for each and every punter wanting to get home in one piece

Is taxi availability really the responsibility of the council?It should be supply and demand. If there's not enough taxis available on a Sturday night then the taxi firms should be employing more drivers to pick up the slack.

I reckon there's easily a busy 6 hour perios on Saturday nights. Part time taxi drivers. Simple. It doesn't suddenly become easy getting a taxi at around 2:30, the problem goes on much later than that imo.

knew it, didn't think hours in the week was the type of number that flows naturally mid statement!

It IS safe to go out in Belfast though. I see very few fights in the city centre and in the clubs/venues I frequent. I can't say the same about places like Glasgow, Liverpool, Newcastle.

Tell that to this guy www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-...

I agree but its safe because we're a small place. Its like saying ballycastle is safe to go out in, of course it is, there's only two men and a worried sheep in the local bar

Sheep worrying is a serious crime, front page news in some parts

There's an old saying: "Feared shep isnae chep."

I walked home the other week after not being able to get a taxi. A lot of people doing the same and there were a lot of total states staggering all over the show. I'd be pretty sure they would normally be in a taxi. Wouldn't be surprised if there was an increase in knock downs/road accidents etc in the weeks after the 2am licensing.

Now worries JL. Wee bit of cow tipping is better craic anyway.

0 |

Will be fun in a few years when kicking out time is at midnight!

Not really but would be suprised if it moves from 2 am for a long time.

0 |

Cow tipping isn't real. I only found this out recently. Wee myth!

0 |

really wayne?

0 |

Just checked there actually and it appears you are correct. I know a fella who claims to have partaken in a bit of the aul tipping on a few occasions. Spoofing cunt.

Who the fuck gets raped by a 5ft 9 bloke?!!

0 |

Incidentally the man rape occurred in the vicinity of the gay sauna which isnt subject to the same licensing laws although there is no evidence at present that either victim or attacker had been in the gay sauna

0 |

considering it is the average height of males in the UK, I would suggest that quite a few people get raped by men who are 5ft 9.

Id love some 5 foot 9 lad to try and rape me, Id make him suck the balls clean off me

0 |

i never see fights, i never have a problem getting a taxi, i don't mind the early closing hours as i couldn't be arsed staying in places any later anyway. and if i want to stay in a place later, there are various after hours options seemingly always available.

do any of you feel negatively affected by the licensing changes? have they changed? no difference from my perspective. i go out. i get drunk. i come back.

Part time taxi driver equals massive car insurance increase, £145 a year Psv instead of cheaper mot, taxi license, depot rent as its still illegal to operate solely unless a black hack so this in mind Wayne would u taxi part time for this tiny period that u hink requires more taxis being as yer so in touch with yet finances yes it's true there is a requirement for more taxis in this slot but the rest of the hundreds of hours a week taxi drivers sit staring at each other so step up or fuck up?
