"Irresponsible" Pubs To Be Shut

Cllr Colin Barrow, leader of Westminster City Council, has warned that "irresponsible" pubs will be shut in the run up to the 2012 Olympics.

Cllr Barrow has also threatened to find out which venues have served drunks.

Could he define exactly what constitutes "drunk" and "irresponsible"?

In the event the 2012 Olympics actually happens, and London accommodates millions of sports fans, there are a number of more pressing issues that the council and tourism industry need to address eg:

-The trains, buses and tubes work and run beyond midnight

-There are clean and numerous facilties such as toilets in London

-The pubs, clubs and other night spots are open for trade late into the night

-Hotels don't rip people off with extortionate charges and lousy substandard rooms/service

In other words, London has to be made far more welcoming and tourist friendly than it currently is.
