In April, but they won’t sell alcohol. And still you daft fuckers don’t think this is about control.
I think the authorities are working to destroy the social fabric of the indigenous working class.Maybe so. I'm just trying to understand what kind of 'control' the government would exert by allowing the pubs to reopen but preventing them from serving booze for a ouple of weeks. What could the illuminati - or whoever - actually accomplish by that? We'll all be getting pissed in pubs by June anyway, so what difference would it make?
Still don’t understand what they would gain from this apart from some very pissed off indigenous working classes.I think the authorities are working to destroy the social fabric of the indigenous working class.
Pubs, casual/private sector employment, inexpensive foreign holidays, cheap personal transport etc are all in the firing line.
More nasty shit to come, free speech, freedom of information etc.
Seeing as no one anywhere has any evidence that covid spread is more likely around alcohol, there's no reason other than puritanical paternalism. These kinds of rules were taken to court in New York and thrown out and the owners managed to save their businesses.
My local landlady would disagree with you.Seeing as no one anywhere has any evidence that covid spread is more likely around alcohol, there's no reason other than puritanical paternalism.

There's no data to suggest covid spread is higher at 10:01 PM as opposed to 9:59 PM or two pints rather than three.
It's just bureaucrats being bureaucratic, copying the rules of others to make up for their own lack of imagination.
I'm fully reconciled to being an expert in nothing.I am an expert and so are you. We've both got an opinion and suppositions, we're both qualified to advise government it seems. I think the core issue is that no small business or shop should be closed at all, when they've demonstrated that they can function safely and effectively. Asking a bulk of the population to commit cultural and economic suicide on an opinion is a bit extreme. A panic measure has become institutionalised.
It's encouraging that this stuff is finally getting to court and emergency injunctions stopping this garbage are being issued. Not that it'll help at this point.
bu.. bu.. but.. the science!
bu.. bu.. but.. the lawsuits!
