One for the road.
So the Great British pub is calling last orders up and down the land. On of the reasons cited for these closures is people drinking cheap supermarket booze at home. Guess what? Tescos are looking at buying up these former pubs, to create small town centre stores, selling cheap booze no doubt. Still every little bit helps; we’ve got a society were crime is often alcohol related and people are drinking themselves into ill health if statistics are to be believed. Flood the market, Fuck up the people, then monopolise it and let the government control them with safe units of alcohol consumption and asbos. Aaah! The smell of free market capitalist bullshit.
