To be honest, that sounds like absolute hell to me.
I couldn't imagine life without pubs.
For me, pubs are the very heart and soul of the country.
If you want to understand the British people take a tour of some traditional British pubs and listen to the banter and conversations.
Forget the wine bars, gin bars and trendy pubs with their faux middle class clientele, go to the traditional local bars and meet real people.
Sadly these are the pubs most under threat. There seems to be some sort of concerted effort to shut these types of pubs down.
A discussion for another time and place methinks...we like to keep the craic more upbeat and positive here!
