Pub culture is an essential part of british culture – they're closing by the dozen these days. And they're not going to be saved by people who pop in for a glass of white wine with the kids for an hour every other Sunday afternoon -however vocal these fairweather drinkers are on this website.
As a drinker, a smoker and the holder of a driving license – myself and people like me pump fortunes in revenue back into the country. Many other countries have a much more civilised approach to smoking. With weather as unhospitable as hours, it's time our policy was reviewed.
I'm not so fussed about being outside in November – but older gents of my aquaintance, some who fought for this country do feel it. It's a simple pleasure. Lets get some perspective on this.
