Agree that the drunks should have been curtailed. Much as I love lowbrow entertainment (and sorry to use the snotty "lowbrow" but I can't think of what else) I avoid any in the UK that promise to include copious boozing. After forty years overseas, I find the OTT drinking, and the obnoxious behaviour that comes with, really striking and sad. Whatever the event was meant to be about, it becomes all about getting utterly smashed and acting out. It suggests to me that even people who have kept their heads well above water in the dog-eat-dog economy of recent years are still basically unhappy.
