    THE BEER LIST

    Adam’s Brewery of Southward, Suffolk
    Lighthouse 3.4%% The first beer on the list is by chance also the weakest by strength. But it could be a good way of kicking off the proceedings. Golden and crisp. Brewed with Pale Ale and Crystal malts and Fuggles & Goldings hops.
    They'll be about as impressed as I am with the Chancellor announcing no increase in beer duty (except what we said last time would go up now)

    I hope it's not going to be anything like the lottery ad in which he features.

    From the Facebook page of Harry's Bar, Wakefield:

    'The management kindly request that whom ever keeps emptying the sanitary bin all over the floor in the ladies and then stealing the bin to stop it. We are now on our 3rd in as many months. I've looked and you can buy one for only £4 from wilkinson. If it's because your strapped for cash you could drink one less pint and that could pay for you a new bin.'

    The mind boggles.

    If the appeal is unsuccessful The Baum may well shut in about 2 years.

    Agreed. Is this on the basis of having good and improved turnover on the premises? Where is the inducement for well founded business effort if it results, effectively, in punishment for success? Do business taxes not account for increased returns based on earnings?
    That 'transitional relief' only delays the pain - how can the new 'rateable value' escalate so dramatically?
