sharing news and views from Crouch End and Hornsey
I saw the tape this morning. Possible lines of inquiry to determine whether this club should be investigated further include
The sergean responsible for our Safer Neighbourhood John.McGrath@met.police.uk

I will not be around to formulate a proper question to these people, but perhaps it could be as simple as "What will trigger a review of the licence conditions at BG Max?"
do you know what kind of place it is and who is going there?
The owner is quoted as saying “Normally we have one bouncer for 60 people and that night we had 80 people and five bouncers.
“If people want to fight they will, and even if you take them out they will continue and then it’s the police’s turn.
“I’ve got an appointment with the council next week; it’s not our fault to be honest - it happens in every club, in every borough.” which seems nihilist and irresponsible - I'd disbar him from having a licence on the basis of this quote alone.

Ooh lovely - a special night out for Bulgarian fighters! Bet that was a quiet night in...
