Enjoy it while you can

Transport minister Jim Fitzpatrick, in launching the annual Christmas drink-driving campaign, has stated that the government will be consulting (again) early in the New Year as to whether to lower the drink-drive limit. This will come as a sickening blow to licensees and pubgoers who were massively relieved when this threat to their livelihood and their social lives was seen off a few years back.

Obviously this has to be fought tooth and nail, but in a climate of increasingly irrational anti-drink hysteria I fear that this time it is likely to happen.

So enjoy those pubs while you can, because once this comes in the English pub as we currently know it will become a thing of the past outside a small urban rump.
