Alter drinking habits to help our industry survive
WHY so much moaning about the restrictions regarding pubs?
In my younger days, licensing hours were nowhere near as long as they are now. Sensible drinkers went in at opening time and bought their needs before leaving fully refreshed at closing time.
The licensee was happy with the trade and his staff were able to finish work at a reasonable time.
The change in drinking habits means people stocking up beforehand with cheap drink and giving money to supermarkets.
Folks, the answer to saving our pubs is simple: change your drinking habits.
