A final list of quotes overheard in Bristol this year

Such a hectic term is surely responsible for creating a bumper crop of ingenious quotes from the wise and witty students of UoB. After five editions of 'Overheard in Bristol', sit back and enjoy the last one of 2017-18 to round off the year in suitably enjoyable style….
