Nobody is " being judge and jury " but just trying to bang some sense into people. Nobody said social distancing was going to be easy but it is essential.

Oh well its 8.20 pm here in Perth and as our pubs are still open for now,I'm off for a pint or two.Cheers.

Last one I went to was early 2000s, the Friday night before an Albion away game at Bury, in a village on the edge of the Pennines. Apparently it was well known and normal practice for all the pubs in the village. Around 11pm, the landlady drew the curtains, locked the door and off we went. The place was still quite full when we left around 12.30. I was a stranger, but the landlady didn't seem concerned. My friend from Bury who I was staying with, said the local police had bigger issues to deal with in the nearby urban areas on a Friday night than worry about a lock in out of town.

But yeah, lock ins in the current crisis. No, not acceptable.

Just seen posts of Facebook of people proudly having a last “hurrah” in the pub. Most looked over sixty without a braincell between them. At least one works in a hospital. What more can you say other than f........ idiots.

The Cricketers in Broadwater are selling off their beer cheap before they have to throw it down the drain. Just need to take a container to put it in. I do believe it’s £2 a pint.

Except when I'm on Shoreham Beach.Only stayed at the pub for just over the hour as it was a bit to busy for me,full of young people dancing to the live band.That can't be right its only us older folk who are not taking this Chinese flu seriously.

Didn’t mean it to come across as such, but the point is that so many people still seem to be misunderstanding the point of social distancing. It’s not for your own protection - it’s for everyone’s.

Surely, when all this is said and done, we’d all want to be able to look back and say we did everything we could to keep the death toll as low as realistically possible, no?

Why not get some tins or small bottles from the supermarket and meet his cronies in the local park? That way, they can still have drink and a chinwag but out in the fresh air which will be a bit safer?

This....not sure why it’s so difficult to understand. We’ve just had a ‘social gathering’ of six of us (3 couples). Went for a long walk on the Downs (keeping the requisite distance) then had a coffee (we each brought our own) in the car park. Previously this would have been a pub lunch or all gather at one of our houses.

As an aside, the whole ****ing world seems to have descended on the South Downs today. The J&J car park at Clayton was full before 10am, by 2pm cars were parked all the way down the lane (including of course in all the passing spots, so getting out was a nightmare). If you’re planning on a visit tomorrow, get there early. Imagine the seafront was similar ?

Would it have been The Couch at that time? As you say, changed hands a lot. Think it was The Rabbit at one point and before that a hang out for people gambling away their earning across the road in the bookies. Used to see many a down at heel coming out of there counting their meagre change.

yes possibly. It's just always been a bit shit, regardless of how many times they tart it up/'rebrand' it. Strange as it's in a decent location
