It sounds like he a long hard day and a bit too much to drink on an empty stomach. He get gets cranky and belligerent when he's had some alcohol , So what? Millions of people do the same and it doesn't end the world. Fine him an put the show back on. The BBC is stupid to let this turn in such a big circus.
Does millions of people doing it make it sensible? I'm always told not to drink much until I get some food in me, because it makes you more inebriated if you booze up to the late hours without eating.
Exactly...but people use the former as an "excuse" for the latter. He's old enough to know how to act like an adult.
I don't think the others would stay. They all knew it would end someday somehow and hopefully they have been preparing.
I hope it is not gone, I don't think they have finished but they are closer to the end every year.
