Laughing and luckily unhurt, her friends pull her off the ground. I had just got back after over a month in Wrocław, Poland. There on the beautiful main square I saw young people sitting, standing, drinking and enjoying themselves. In York I saw intoxicated, aggressive and noisy people everywhere, staggering around and falling over. Such is British binge drinking culture. Sad. And dangerous.

The Ukrainian flag flutters over York Mansion House, and yet another drunk, pink hen party girl falls over in York, England.
