Default Degenerate gamblers or loyal customers?

Was in London earlier today and had occasion to be walking through Leicester Square at 11.30am. Couldn't believe it to see around two dozen punters queuing up waiting to get into Napoleons when it opened (presumably at noon).

Couldn't help thinking there's more to life . . . . .

No. Leicester Square = London. Check out the Monopoly board.

Napoleon's being a casino at Leicester Square, and punters being its customers.

Correct.

Green leafy part of the UK? There are still quite a few to be found. Alas, Sheffield isn't one of 'em.

Tell this to the University of Sheffield. Sheffield is England's greenest city, containing 150 woodlands and 50 public parks. There are four times as many mature trees as people! http://www.shef.ac.uk/materials/prospective_ug/city

I knew that. It was "punters queuing up" that had a nice ring to it.

Probably is if you count the canabis plants the locals grow in window boxes as woodlands and the weeds and moss growing up between the paving stones as public parks. What do you expect when you let some marketing spiv loose on a prospectus?
