    I know someone has asked this already, but should contributors be closing pubs temporarily? At this rate, all of the pubs will need to be marked as closed!

    Just random thought, does HMG have legal authority to close pubs etc? Has the CV19 bill gone through Parliament yet and got Lizzie’s sign off?
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    Apologies to Spike Milligan

    I think the general idea is to leave and then mark pubs as closed when they fail to reopen.

    I imagine so. The Government has all sorts of tools, probably under the Emergency Powers Act.

    I can't answer that question but it did cross my mind earlier in the week. Assuming there has been no changes in the licencing laws, I assume that the police or army have no authority to enforce it. I got a mail from Premier Inn before the announcement saying that all their restaurants & bars would be closing so presumably they were told in advance.
    A bistro at the top of my road has reopened this week after taking over the shop next door. It was empty today.
