This is a quick montage of images featured on the website.

I have to say that I think this is the most disgusting, embarrassing series of images I’ve seen of Cardiff. I love the city, there’s plenty to be proud of – but of a weekend night it seems to descend into hell.

Where is the local authority – those rubbish bins are far too small and too few. Where are the landlords and licensees that they’re selling alcohol to such inebriated customers without consideration for the law? Where is the Welsh Assembly in the lack of funding available for the police to deal with this kind of behaviour?

    How many of those pictured got tanked up on cheap supermarket booze before they went out?

    You asked “Where is …”

    I ask “Where is there the responsibility for ‘self’?” It’s easy to blame ‘the government’ for lack of facilities, but take a look at the root cause of this – an entire generation, an entire culture built on the idea that this is an appropriate way to act.

    To quote from a BBC article Entrenched drinking habits from 2003 regarding relaxing the drinking laws:

    “We have a very entrenched culture of intoxication.”

    People as old as their late 20s and early 30s felt they had a right to get “smashed” and the young people were following their example.

    As long as culture says this is ‘fun’ and ‘cool’ it will continue. As long as people have the attitude of entitlement, it will continue.

    Want it to stop? Make negative ramifications for their actions. But it has to be society as a whole that makes the whole experience a negative one. Time to grow up, UK. You’re embarrassing yourself.
