    I think knocking up a fake passport in order to legally purchase a packet of 10 Marlboro Lights is a bit extreme. Surely if the intention was to pass herself off as someone on forged documentation she would have gone for a packet of 20 at least and made it all worthwhile.

    As I say jobsworth.

    The trouble is though, if I am reading it right they have been told that if they do not check a valid Id (which is some half arsed list they have been given) they will lose their licence. Whereas before I think you could give a reasonable effort defence, which would mean an out of date passport would be fine.

    I know from when I used to work behind a counter we used to be worried about random tests where they would get kids to come in and try and buy some ciggy's.

    Just another sample of the recent legislative system that tries to legislate for everything and offer no discrimination. I swear if the Government could replace us with robots they would.

    Well not pub news, but I just feel that the Sussex Police Spokesman deserves an award:

    The whole thing looks like a series of cock-ups.
    And you can really taste the hops!

    On BBC South this morning, the village of Shittole [sp?]in Dorset has replaced it's village name road sign with a 1.5 ton one made of Purbeck stone, reason was old signs kept being stolen

    Maybe collectors getting the set with Piddlehinton et al

    No web link as yet

    Its actually called Shitterton although the more polite villagers refer to the village as Sitterton. Fortunately the folk of this village in Austria aren't as fussy! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fucking,_Austria
