Exactly. And kids shouldn't be in the pub anyway, especially on a school night.

Stupid story this, but I recently got a little book called Kessingland and its Characters. One of the stories was about how in the late 1800s they tried letting fishermen participate in lessons at school. The notes from the time were something like:

"Class well attended by fishermen"
"Fishermen swearing, smoking and disrupting lessons"
"Fishermen gone to the pub during lunch"
"No fishermen now in attendance"

I imagine this would have the same outcome!

Or pubs into schools?

Let the teachers stay at home and have Old Dave from the end of the bar, who knows everything (I know he knows everything because he told me), give the kids the benefit of his University of Life education, and beer breath.

The only thing I know is that I might be wrong about everything else.

Yeah, sounds good to me. He would be a darn sight more interesting than 90% of the teachers in my schools.

Skools = 12 years of tedium.

Hey teachers , leave them kids alone.

Just another brick in the (rich mans) wall.

Perpetuate the myth of equality, the rich own you all.

Etc...

But can old Dave cook? As kids need cooking lessons

I'm not sure how closing my local which is mainly populated by John Smith's drinking scrotes watching the racing on telly before toddling home on their mobility scooter with a hi vis jacket draped over the back will benefit the nearby primary school.

Er...you are correct. The local and national economy needs the business rates, vat and Employees income tax/national insurance (depending on income) from an open pub.

However, the rest of your post smacks of being a pretentious middle class snoot. As, unfortunately, do many of the posts from people on this forum.

Pees me off to be honest.

That's the "scrotes" lives and they are probably having a more enjoyable time than you. Lol

#ClassWarefare/Don'FallIntoTheTrap.

#CouncilEstateAren'tAllBad. But too many are, admittedly sh*t... ;)

However, we, the people are an interesting and mixed bag.

But, one assumes, beyond hope for most of you (concluding from most posts that the 52% has to come from this demographic).

Perhaps in the future, "you" will really be able to do a HitchHikers and cast off the undesirables on a spaceship to nowhere. Or maybe be a Pak Protector...how many to sacrifice to ensure the survival of those considered more valuable.

;)

Pubs will be shut again before too long. There's posters up everywhere about 1 in 1 out of the toilets in my gaff and people are just ignoring them. I went for a slash earlier, the door was unlocked and there were 4 of them in there. Went back a few minutes later and it was the same story. Once they've had a few drinks all advice goes out the window.
