    Well the pubs reopening has certainly brought out the neo-pro's, snowflakes and other assorted twats

    Sheffield City Council
    https://www.examinerlive.co.uk/news/...tweet-18535164

    Devon & Cornwall Police said they (and Dorset) would be limiting pub visits to 2 hours, when told "er that's not in the guidelines" they swiftly retracted the tweet and issued some weasel words denying they'd said it.

    Greater Manchester Police in a blind panic https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-englan...ester-53263328 and No10 too ;https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-53281539



    Likely to be a damp squib anyway:

    "However, there are signs that some people will be reluctant to return. Pollsters Ipsos-Mori said 60% of the 1,000 people they spoke to said they would be uncomfortable going to a bar or restaurant". (BBC)
    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

    Not as much change as when people are hit with 25,000 volts, with customers describing the pub's atmosphere as 'electric'.

    If you see a pub cat with a similar appearance, avoid!

    How to ruin it for everyone. I wouldn't like to be in their shoes if the entire town is shut down for a month.

    I hope collars are felt.
