Thousands of pubs around Britain face being put out of business by high beer taxes, campaigners complain.



Give it up. Alcohol is a drug and a very dangerous one at that. Far more dangerous than heroin. Something society would be far better off without.


I've never heard such a load of old cobblers in my life. I'm 83 and never had a days illness and drink 4 pints every day.

I used to make some very nice wine a few years ago but can't get the kit these days. Is rtt on this or the other forum. It would be nice to make some again if I could source the supplies.
