I spoke to my local landlord just as the shutdown happened. He said that they could sell beer etc. if people brought their own containers along, could sell bottles of wine etc.

But he said that for drinking at home it's way cheaper for people to just go and stock up from the supermarket...

why i criticize this government !

Vietnam , a country of nearly 100 million , had less notice than us , has a border with China , implemented strict measures to contain the virus like screening of all who crossed the border ,and have recorded ZERO deaths ! i do take that figure with a pinch of salt ! but still are way way way better off than this bunch of fu**wits ,

We are an Island , we are still allowing thousands to enter , per day , unchecked !

Please point out any aspect up to date that they have handled well

Come on lads , lets rise above handbags , put em away !

I don't think they can do takeaway booze due to licensing, but a couple of my locals are doing food delivery/takeaway.
One is actually doing Sunday carvery via video call

Back to all things viral ...

As it's looking like pubs will be really struggling, is there anything they can do or are doing at the moment to at least get a few quid in? Can they operate as off-licences and sell takeaway beer or deliver booze, or does a normal pub licence prohibit that sort of thing?

Sorry. I though it was patronising. If it wasn't, my mistake.

Surprised at the dig Jon as my post was meant to be a compliment.

The content of this thread should be a Corona which I'm interested in. I know threads go off topic and I can be guilty of doing that and have some laughs on the way but when people are dying I think it's wrong for people to use it as an excuse to ram their Corbyn views on me over and over and over and over again.

Edit
Just seen your edit. That was funny!

Hi Sir B,

Yes, I would go along with that.
It's actually his political posts in particular that make me laugh.
Although, it would save a lot of effort for his writing, and our reading, if he just wrote about the politicians he actually does like, rather than the long list of those he doesn't.

BB.

If we avoided Covid and politics then Jon would be absolutely fine. We've had some laughs over the years and I'm looking forward to when this is all over and normality is resumed

And you'd be absolutely fine if you stopped moaning about the contents of threads that absolutely no one makes you read if you don't want to, eh?

Edit: although we could do with the return of the bloke in South Africa who posted about using a strimmer as an outboard motor. He was a right laugh.

Is it only me that's noticed that not once has ever posted about fishing. I'd rather here about his French fishing trips and the barn he owns. At least Ocelot contributes to the rest of the forum.

Hi Sir B,

Not much chance of that I'm afraid.
I think he's been fitted with a Duracell battery.
Given the numbers currently posting on forum, we're bound to have one or two
They say each village has one too.

Hi Sir B,

Yes, I quite agree.
Just imagine if you turned up to live on site in a caravan and then found that those you were expected to share it with were:- Spanker, Jon Boy, Ocelot and Tim Richardson.
There is a way out of that nightmare scenario, take your bivvy and live in that.

BB.

Hi BB , are you ok , you are not making much sense ,rambling on about shifting the emphasis , momentum and trying to flatter myself , i will ignore that last post and hope that you have recovered today !

The biggest battle for the Tory party this week as most others is to deceive us is , word terminology , after being promised that 100 000 test a day will be undertaken , per day by the end of this month they are try to deceive with the word "capacity " like yesterday they had the capacity to carry out 40 000 test's but carried out only 13 000 , our health care workers attending care and nursing homes are desperate for these test's 1000's of them , so as not to infect the elderly or those homes which equates to a death sentence !

It's like watching six year old's make a cake , just one big mess !

day after day after day after day after day

just a shame it equates to so much misery !

When the supply chain has zero stock and smaller consignments of ppe are being sold by private companies, nhs trusts that have actually got a shortage of kit have a duty of care to the staff and patients to protect them.
The budgets arenít dwindling as quickly as usual either given cancer patients are being left to die
