Friday happenings

'Rowdy' Conservative Pensioners
Members of a suburban Conservative club have vowed to curb their high spirits after an application to extend opening hours nearly fell foul of their rowdy behaviour.

The committee of Erdington Conservative Club in Birmingham thought that with an average age of 65 and some members well into their 80s, the local licensing committee would grant them an extension without much trouble.

But they reckoned without 21 objections from some locals in the residential area, who tut-tutted at the sound of late-night discos and karaokes plus gin-and-tonic-fuelled noise after last orders. Life in the old dogs yet eh?
