https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-54242634 "People are understandably asking what difference closing at 22:00 makes. Coupled with the table service law, it will be little more than a marginal gain" The less alcohol you have, the less drunk you are the more likely you are to keep to social distance guidelines. Is that really so hard for the BBC to understand? Relatively early closing times are a good balance between keeping people safe and not being in a full lockdown again. Everything the BBC does is ingrained with bias. No pretence. Just a determination to undermine every step the Government takes to keep people safe.
