Yes When we all went to We Love on 28 June, Security made us all remove our shades when we got to the front of the que To be honest I am not sure why If people are not intoxicated before entering the club they soon will be once in there Just seems pointless if you ask me. Also their searches are pointless too. Just a quick pat on the pockets.....
After we used our passes out and returned about 10.30 pm of course we did not have our shades on and we all looked slighty worse for wear but they did not bother at all
From a security point of view, it looks like a good idea.
As for searches, light, pointless ones are the best. It allows the club to "look like it's doing something" while rave monkeys carry their goodies in their pants. The great irony is that it's the clubs which have the search policies and the big posters saying "DRUGGIES WILL BE HANDED OVER TO THE POLICE" that have all the mashed folk inside.
When i went to WLS opening they stopped everyone to take a photo of them (kinda like they do in heathrow airport) on the way in. Thought this was a bit OTT but it must be for ID purposes incase anything happens of your get caught for something.
