I didn't see it in the What's On listing, but there seems to be a Festival of Street Drinking going on.

In a short(ish) walk around the Southwark Bridge Road, Borough Road, London Road, Westminster Bridge Road, Lower Marsh neighbourhood at lunchtime, I saw more than a dozen street drinkers or vagrants, lying slovenly and ill dressed across various pavements, on their own or in groups of three or four.

I've never seen so many in such a short period of time. Does anyone know if there's any particular reason for this concentration today?

Actually, I fancy a beer. I think Iíll go and join them.

I did wonder whether they were flocking before having a last dump on Jessica's doorstep and then migrating south for the winter.
