punkfolkrocker BS: Brexit & other UK political topics (2476* d) RE: BS: Brexit & other UK political topics 18 Jul 21

In many ways It's quite handy I gave up drinking for health and finance reasons two and a half years ago..

.. but anyway, all my favourite local old fashioned rough tatty pubs with authentic character and atmosphere,
have closed permamently...

Shut down and converted into flats in recent years before covid;
and the last one closed for good with the death of it's popular old landlord at the start of the pandemic.

He was an independent stubornly commited to CAMRA - the last of a near extict breed...

Others in town will never reopen due to covid, but that's the ruthless uncaring nature of survival of the fittest capitalism..

Personally, I had already got used to the normality of an alchohol free stay at home lifestyle well before this crisis...

So, I've no time for pathetic / callous bleating on about the adverse effects on mass public mental health
from going without a pint in a crowded overpriced pub,
far outweighing potential fatalities from in-pub covid transmission..

That's basically just cynical media propaganda from political shills for the big hospitality profiteers...

Roll on freedom day celebrations, and the inevitable expendable death toll... least with only long covid, survivors might still carry on going out paying for a regular theraputic booze session..
