Regular commenter and all-round socialist nutcase, NorthBriton45 has written a post with which, broadly I agree. I feel soiled and might have to go and lie down. Of course he has a broad and deep knowledge of pubs as befits a man in his profession, and this expert knowledge of the watering holes of the west end shows.
As he’s a socialist there’s an inevitable turd on the lawn, in the form of a call for Government action, inevitable in a post lamenting a failure of the one piece of New Lab legislation I agreed with. He’s arguing in favour of minimum pricing, though only against supermarkets – why should responsible drinkers not benefit from supermarket loss leaders? But his comments on the way noisy drinking barns have been able to benefit from late licenses when responsible pubs without loud music have been denied them are absolutely spot on.
