For a site of supposed hard-core gamers, the vitriol aimed at Blackpool by some people is baffling.

It's been the home of some of the best arcades in the country for decades.
This man knows what's up. 20p would cover me on a Saturday morning in Mr B's for a full clear of R-type and a decent run at clearing APB.

Young people in the Sixties: "Fight for Lenny Bruce's freedom to speak! An artist's job is to offend".

Young people in 2021: "Fight for the authorities's power to decide who gets to speak. An artist's job is to promote sustainable development and pro-European Union policies".

I’m not really a fan of comics that only do crude humor, but it’s a shame he got canceled. Not surprised it happened in the UK though, just wait a while until he posts a bit online and goes to jail

Depends on what he says. If he says anything that is considered a hate crime under UK law, then he can expect to be punished for it.
