“More than 200 MPs” are backing a campaign to……”
…where have we heard all that self-regarding tripe before? When will the goverNazis realise that, not only have we all realised that what they touch (or regulate) turns to dust and ashes, but that we are fast realising that they are doing it on purpose?
Measures to save the “Great British Pub”, as outlined by The Libertarian Alliance:-
(1) Abolish (ideally) all Excise Duty on alcoholic drinks:
(2) Allow __Publicans__ to dictate whether or not they individually want to allow “smoking”, lap-dancers, food, strippers, “Ladies of the Night”, football screens, children, music etc, in their own premises:
(3) Abolish ALL drink-driving/alcohol-blood-level legislation, and impose astonishingly large fines and/or prison sentences for injuring or killing someone while drunk in charge of a vehicle:
(4) Stop conflating deaths of drunk pedestrians into “drink-drive-deaths”:
You can’t do it by making “supermarket lager” more expensive. People who buy this won’t go to pubs anyway. Let Pubs make themselves more attractive and individual, remove the disabilities of mostly responsible drivers and smokers and enjoyers of social activity in groups, such as watching lap-dancers, eating burgers and chips, bear-bating and the like, and pubs will recover.
