It's sick...what right has anyone got to lay a finger on another person? The 26yr old must have severe psychological problems. Even in an argument why do people resort to violence. Lock the offender up!

I am in my 20's and I am disgusted with the society we live in.This should not be happening in the 21'st century. This is thuggish behavior that no human being should ever face in their lifetime. I hope the gentleman makes a speedy recovery and that the thug gets sent down (not that jail is much of a punishment these days but it's the best we can do for now) Something has to change, things like this should not be happening.

Can't believe I'm reading this ! This is a 62 year old man !!!! Against a 26 year old ??? I'll argue all day long with anybody who I think is in the wrong, but it's gotta be two sided view. An equal footing. Who on earth thinks that it's okay to beat someone who is unable to put up an equal side. This fella obviously did something to rub him up the wrong way, but come on ??? If you wanna swing your fists about, make sure the other guy is at least able to offer some sort of fight back. I'm utterly ashamed to be (roughly) the same generation as this reprobate.

Police have arrested a 26-year-old man in connection with the incident, he is currently on police bail. Does that sound sensible? i hope they don't both live in the same village

ray is 62 year old, What sort of scum bag could do that to a pensioner,not only was it from behind but with a bar stool. I wish I was there when it happend, He would never be able to him another man again. If this man is your mate then get him dobbed in. You don't want scum mates like that. He will get a few year for this. And GOOD

II'm scared to grow old in today's worsening society n I'm more frightened for my children to grow up in this mess, with the booze n drug filled society.

its a split lip made look worse buy a bit off blood like ky sed theres two sides to every story and your taking a side because off age just because hes older that dont mean hes not a threat you lot need to get out in to real world once in a life time and stop thinking you no how world works when you have no clue

wft I take it you see it OK to go round beating people up. Cowards hit from behind & only a coward would use a weapon. What right does anyone have to lay a finger on another human being?????
