    Almost certainly Orders in Council, and look who's Lord President of the Privy Council - that's a relief then!

    Gross, however “how politics works”. So sadly any officer of the law won’t be personally liable for restraint of trade actions or similar consequences. Bullocks!

    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Well I wish I was a lawyer. I'm sure someone will indulge in juicy but ultimately doomed litigation, doubtless all the way to the Supreme Court. Plenty of money to be made.

    If you do keep your pub open, they could easily shut you down on public health grounds. See how that runs in the papers if you go to court.

    One pub (Yorkshire Taps in Lancaster) have already said they probably won’t be reopening after the virus.

    Clubs definitely aren't exempt - the restrictions apply to all "drinking establishments": Businesses and Other Venues subject to Further Distancing Measures.

    Of course, enforcement is a different matter, at least until the Coronavirus Bill receives Royal Assent (Section 50 / Schedule 21, see: #127 below).

    Didn't the Americans try something like this just under a hundred years ago? That went well, I seem to recall.

    That was a ban on alcohol, not pubs.

    And it didn't go well!!
    I wonder if there is a potential loophole. The village I recently visited in North Wales has three pubs all of which are connected to hotels. Given that hotels have not been closed down are residents excluded from the bar and / or dining room? I can see the old fashioned lock in returning in rural areas. Does anyone else remember the episode of Eastenders from way back where the pub involved in the plot was the Lock Inn?
