    I saw on BBC TV last night, THE FORTUNES OF WAR pub near Circular Quay has closed due to the Virus,
    I drank in there in 1953 and again last year.

    They have limited the amount of grog one can purchase here in NSW. What idiot thought of this idiotic idea. Now there is panic buying of slabs of beer, spirits and wine going on. So what is going to happen is? Having so much grog on tap it makes a dedicated drinker see how quick they can deplete the stock. So will be fronting up each and every day to keep their stock up to scratch. End result is going to be more drinking going on than before. Or the other alternative the old man beating the sheriff for spending all the dosh on useless stuff like food and crap paper and nothing on grog.
    That's the way the mop flops.

    My thanks to Brian for this site.

    Off-licences have been added to the list of 'essential' retailers now here.
    UK pubs and breweries push to be allowed takeaway sales also. The addition
    of off-licences to the list of essential businesses, announced on Wednesday
    morning, was hailed as welcome news for many people stuck at home, with
    pubs and restaurants shut down and supermarkets running low on supplies
    of beer and wine.

    K.

    Added. Thieves smashed their way into a supermarket and swiped booze.

    Raiders forced open glass doors to the Aldi store in Priory Road, Dudley, at
    around 2am on Thursday, March 26.

    Regret, I made the addition out of interest only.
