Since licensing was taken over by local councils, the old justices full-on and OFF license was replaced by personal licenses. In most cases, the right to off-sales has been removed. If drinking were prioritized this high by an individual, you’d be suggesting they were an alcoholic. They need the revenue to stay alive through this. I would rather support the local pub and brewery than buy beer made in a huge brewery and sold in a supermarket.
All these sports clubs, restaurants, shops, etc. have worked so hard to achieve covid security and have been slapped in the face by a government who couldn’t care less!!!! They don’t care about people they care about how they think they are perceived! If they really cared they would do something about the 93% of deaths in this country that have nothing to do with covid! What is the point in the lockdown at all….I thought you can only leave your house for essential items and exercise, this government just get better!
