    He has a sublet business from another part of the premises iirc so if they still doing off sales he's still making money from his tenant if not the lease terms would see him still collecting rent that was due.

    Ironicly, I was speaking to a neighbour this afternoon, who attended the Cheltenham festival. He said he had been quite ill with Covid-19 like virus in March. He seems to think he caught it at the races. His feeling is that the races should not have gone ahead, and yes, it was all about profit.
    On an even more sombre note, I was passing by the Beehive pub in Prestbury (Cheltenham) the other week, and saw flowers placed outside. I later discovered that the landlord had died from the virus. He had served quite a few customers during the festival.
    What is even more shocking, is that the festival WAS cancelled years ago, because of the foot and mouth crisis. Nice to know where the priorities lie isn't it!
