I know this is a deals site and we all love a bargain or two at the supermarket but another british tradition is under threat.
that is the pub. gordon brown wants to introduce higher taxes on the pint next year
this will make sociable drinking more expensive and communities losing out when it gets too expensive to have a sociable drink at your local witb your mates and pubs having to close because of the higher costs
im asking you to lobby your mp just by filling out the website with your details otherwise there would be another nail in the coffin of our traditions
thankyou very much

Spot on. All pubs in my area are now operating on reduced hours or closing and they all say the smoking ban is the biggest single factor.

mayeb they should all buy their booze form the national supermarkets and punt the beers out cheap.

At least smoking in pubs contained them lol

Forget the ban but give us a quota per city of pubs/wine bars that don't allow which gives people choice.

Keep the ban in restaurants though

Why not just have "smoking pubs",staffed by smokers,let them do what they like :thumbsup:

Too simple for our Nanny State Government.

They do that in Spain, they have " smoking " or " non smoking " bars, it works fine there.
