Piss on the Nose

Piss on the Nose


Being an ignorant 1st year student I can't seem to understand the system by which the Rock Concerts, where ale is available, work.

I've vaguely heard of certain rules concerning the sale of alcohol on the campus. First, it's not allowed because its not licensed premises and second the caretaker has the right to close the bar when he sees fit i.e. when people are getting good and pissed. To me it seems a bit on the nose that a key wielding non student can virtually control a concert especially in the Student Union Hall.

On Sunday the Rock Concert Circus provided the potential for a really good time but I thought the organisation was a complete fuck-up.

At Canterbury they have a Stein (Pissup) each weekend. These sometimes have a band and if not just records. There is no admission charge but a student I.D. has to be shown. Outside the hail tickets can be bought for ale (20c can) and without being questioned at the door by some bow-tie clad prick. Surely the rules in the universities don't vary so much that one can have a good piss up each week and we have to manage with one a term.
