Minor British Institutions: The fight outside the kebab shop

Author: By Sean O’Grady

Obviously drink is a factor. But why the kebab shop should be the focus for
violence ? rather than, say, the chippy or burger van ? is less clear.
Perhaps it is something to do with the extra chilli sauce that inflames
passions. Or it could be the often-chaotic queuing system. Or the contents
of a sometimes-untidy sandwich spilling out on to a stranger’s outfit.

In any case, a sizeable proportion of the British people will have witnessed
such a scrap, or at least stepped over bloodied city-centre pavements strewn
with bits of kebab, squashed chips and the odd abandoned stiletto the
following morning. Reason enough for this ritual to qualify as a Minor
British Institution.
