    Buses, tubes, DLR and overground are free for me! Oh, and trains within Greater London after 09:30.
    It's the fact they have gone down the kegs and cans only route that puts me off the most. Four quid a pint is cheap compared to Dog Spew.

    Default Bradford on the up & up

    News of yet another pub/bar in North Parade, Bradford, so that's City Gent, Sparrow, Dime Bar, Record Cafe and now The Beerhouse. With several new ones in Leeds and Harrogate in recent months as well Otley better watch out.

    London 'drug dealer' Fields update:

    This sociopath’s outfit raided today by HMRC They arrived with a barrister in tow for some reason. They removed a van load of paper files and records, but didn’t stop there. They brought a forklift and started loading large amounts of material, equipment and stock onto trucks. This carried on for nearly 12 hours. Whether they have finished now or just knocked off until tomorrow is unclear. I didn’t see any computers seized, but they may have taken those first, before I was aware of what was happening.

    If that’s the end of them, it’ll be good riddance to bad neighbours.

    His rhetoric has got him the headlines but in reality he is part of the pubco lobbying effort in the Lords to overturn the "free of tie" lease freedom.

    I don't think its only a muslim problem as I have friends who are Cypriot,Italian,Caribbean who would never think of going to the pub.Also I have Polish friends and lots of Polish neighbours who love a drink but they wont pay pub prices and have no culture of drinking in pubs.The high Asia population of Hounslow and Southalll had devastated the pub trade in those areas.
