such as getting pubs back in the loop
Aye Richard, but how? Is the big question there. Drinking in a relatively civilised atmosphere, at affordable prices, Bliar's lot cocked up there. They have caused the collapse of the traditional sociable drinking - with a pint and mates at the local boozer.
If one goes to a town centre, the drinking barns abound - just places to 'get off one's face' and no I do not frequent such beer halls, once again, I ask myself is this all part of the Bread and Circuses 'thing'?
You don't get banged up for a night anymore, if you are pissed up in the street, no, now you are a medical problem - small wonder there are so many attacks on hospital staff on the Fri/Sat night shift - when did [DD] it cease being a public order offence??
The last and the present governments encourage[d] binge drinking. But now, because of the appalling street scenes [young females more particularly] - SOMETHING HAS TO BE DONE! (BMA?)
All it needs is - just bin idiot politicians, allow some pubs to have smoking room/areas, stop the shots, raise legal boozing age to 21 and drop the tax on cask ale.
