Practice what you preach

The Tories are reported to be launching a campaign to save the Great British pub. Well, good on them if they are, but it will be interesting to see if this is reflected in action on the ground. Will Tory-controlled local authorities start applying pub-friendly policies? This one certainly didn’t, and Tory-controlled Westminster is notorious as one of the most restrictive licensing authorities in the country. This is reminiscent of recent general elections when national Conservative spokesmen were keen to proclaim that their party was “motorist-friendly” at the same time as Tory-controlled councils were eager participants in “Speed Camera Partnerships” and slashing speed limits all over the place.
