    Wales is already in the same position as England: Rheoliadau Diogelu Iechyd (Coronafeirws, Cau Busnes) (Cymru) 2020.

    No Statutory Rules yet in Northern Ireland as far as I can see.

    Why are people such a bunch of stupid dickheads?

    Pictures from yesterday of Londoners flocking to a flower market.

    Bournemouth seafront absolutely packed.

    Queueing for fish and chips in Whitby.

    Clothes shops still open!

    Costa saying they're going to close, they were a f**king café anyway.

    We're all going to pay for it with a total lockdown thanks to these bankers.

    You really don't want that to happen, especially according to two couples who are good friends of ours who have been in lockdown in Lanzarote
    in their apartments for 9 days now. It's hard, very hard.

    A couple across the road from us both had their elderly parents round for Mother's Day yesterday, one can only walk with a stick.

    The couple are both health professionals FFS.

    You can add to that list a record day for people visiting Snowdon. On the face of it that doesn't sound bad but you can bet that everyone crowded around the summit cairn despite the fact that most of them would probably have been there before. If they cane via Crib Goch there's not enough room to swing a cat on it.

    As a matter of interest, for how long would an untapped cask of cask beer remain drinkable, in the event of a reopening sometime during the summer?

    All casks have best before dates on them, like most things. I know there are a couple in a local pub cellar with 24/07/2020 on them.

    depends on the strength, how brewed and what it's stored in and where. Many years ago beer was brewed to be stored but nowadays it's for fast turnaround, Marstons beers are likely to go off in a relatively few days as they're fast track yeast, something like Sarah Hughes at 6% will probably last for many months if stored at low (cellar) temperature. Cask Marque's advice on shutting down a cellar is here: https://twitter.com/caskmarque/statu...741248/photo/1

    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    The local Rose & Crown has been doing 10.5% Dark Star Imperial Stout at Xmas. The most recent one was from the previous year. Brodie's only ever did one batch of the 23% Elizabethan Ale. It appeared for years at the Easter Festival but never got any less sweet.
    The lower the ABV the more chance of it going off and it would be best to follow the Best Before date.
