But does that mean that Britain is broken, or that clubs should hand out incontinence pads to people on their way out? Maybe there should be public toilets that aren't locked up most of the time? We live in a small city in Ontario, and the same happens here in certain areas too. IT'S NOT JUST BRITAIN!

It could mean that British social decorum is broken.

Idiot!...that probably happens in most cities in the world.

Try going into an Australian city at night or after some event like a big race meeting and you will see exactly the same thing....probably happens in Japan as well.

Are you really getting off on this? you sad sad person

Remember the pics in the paper here (Brisbane) not long ago? The woman standing up peeing on her seat in the middle of an AFL match?

As I posted a few pages back :
You've been shoving the fact on us( In your opinion ) that Britain is a worthless wasteland in MULTIPLE threads and now you're telling us you're moving back for financial reasons ?

So we could assume a few things:

You've run in to financial hardship and are feeling forced to move back to the UK and resent that fact. That's unfortunate if that is the case.

or

You put money above everything else and all the shit going on in Britain isn't enough to put you off getting your hands on some more readies.


If it's the former move to some other European country there are plenty to choose from , I hear Poland has plenty of affordable housing available - apparently the entire population lives in England now.

If it's the latter ......


No one seems to be putting a gun to your head and forcing you to move back so I can't see why you continue to bang on about Britain , if you don't like it stay where you are or move somewhere else. Perhaps if you posted your thoughts in the "Rest Of The World " you'd be able to find like minded people ?

It could mean that they have got rid of the public loos in the middle of town, like they did in the two main towns where I grew up.
Or that the girl was a total skank (I knew a few of those growing up)

It is getting a bit obvious now isn't it.

Mind you, the last time I was home, I had to keep dodging the peeing women in the street. Bloody hazard!
