'There are two types of clubbers; the clubbing fraternity who bring with them £800 and £2,000 and seek amazing sunsets and clubs and bars, and those who come with just £150 in their pockets looking for cheap beer.

They spoil if for everyone else and tarnish the names of British people abroad.'

'Hip-hop has a particular resonance for those of us whose great social achievement is a careful cultivation of middle-class propriety. That someone could sing of housing projects, foster homes and welfare cheese — how cowards admire courage! If hip-hop has given a platform to those who have negotiated how to stay on top and remain from the underground, the music is, for people like me, one of the few ties to a past we can't express in polite company.'
