Have your say
It was obviously the lads Stag Doo let's lighten up and move on. Sweet Caroline.....Goood times never seemed so good........I don't believe you, you're making it up.
I think that the worse thing about this clown's antics, is 'he was behaving inappropriately to women passengers' Doesn't that say it all. It all fun or is it ? He will have done this before and I hope that when they catch him , which the Police will. He will be well and truly humiliated, just as the women passengers were.
