    It won't be Bozzer who stops them from opening, it'll be the police and I suspect with quite some force if necessary. Judging from the review of The Fuzzy Duck, it doesn't seem worth visiting anyway.

    Quite true, but the problem is that if 4th July is the official opening day (why does it have to be shared with Independence Day?) and there's a serious spike or second wave in Plague - perhaps a week from now - reopening won't be adhered to: it'll be lockdown all over again, IMHO.
    There will not be any second wave once it has passed through a place.

    Personally I don't think pubs should open on the 4th simply because it's a Saturday.

    I'd allow them to open on Monday 6th and let the new measures settle in for a few quieter days, rather than go for the potential mobbing on a Saturday.

    If pubs cock it up then we could be back to square 1 in a few weeks.
    A pub is for life not just for Christmas

    You could well be right. I walked past Neighbour which is selling takeaway plastic cups of fizz and although the front patio was cordoned off, quite a few people were congregating on the pavement and taking over what is technically the patio from the closed venture next door, including the seating. Perhaps the date has been chosen to please US residents here, but I think people will be queuing for a beer as if the pub were a supermarket - will there be rationing?

    Just announced on Radio 4 News: 'people may have to give their details to pubs so that they can be traced'!!!

    It's based on a thing they do in New Zealand

    I suspect this is a bit of media speculation and nothing will come of it.

    Payment card data should be enough for the contact tracers to go on if a venue is found to be a source of infection.

    I love the choice of subject for the photo - a little cryptic, but the world's most appropriate pub, nonetheless!

    Back to cash it is then!

    Not that the risk bothers me now, but I wonder for those still concerned which is the lesser risk:

    1) a small micropub with eight people in, but where you are quite close to others;
    2) a large Wetherspoons with fifty people in, but where you can get a good distance from others.

    Anecdotes from food processing plants and restaurants suggest good air flow from outside is good mitigation. Air conditioning may help or hinder the situation depending on how it is configured...

    For reasons of speed - which will be all the more important now - and hygiene, I suspect that pubs may well go card-only.
