Two British Pubs ‘Close Every Day’

Two British Pubs ‘Close Every Day’ Due To Tax Increases, Cheap Supermarket Deals.

Not that I spend much time in them any more but The British Pub is on the wane, just looking around my home City they are closing everywhere.

No mention of the smoking ban in this article but can’t help thinking it is a contributory factor. They don’t even smell like pubs any more just stale sweat and booze.  The only exception is country pubs with a log fire and old wooden floors.

‘Beans on Toast’ said it best for me with his “F*ck the smoking ban”

Frank Turner – The Next Round

Frank Has done it again with a great track that strikes a few chords with me.

Love the lines

The drink has drunk my days away
I tried to live like Hemingway
But life just doesn’t work that way

Here’s a vid (just the audio) of the song and the Lyrics below.

I drink cause I’m thirsty
I drink cause I’m dry
I’m not yet quite thirty
But i feel like I’m dieing

I drink cause I want to
Cause I need to
Cause I don’t what else to
Do with my time
I wont say it
You can see it, in my eyes

You drink cause your lonely
You drink cause your sad
You always claim every party
Is the best time you ever had
You drink cause your scared of life on
Living off your own company
You wont say it
But i can see it in your eyes

All of the things I could become
A lonely drunkard isnt one
Which I would’ve wished
When I was young

The drink has drunk my days away
I tried to live like Hemingway
But life just doesn’t work that way
The pills don’t kill the pain
They just delay

We drink cause we’re scared that
If we should stop
The good will go away
That the bad times will not
What if its over and we’re sober
And we feel like we’re fixing to die
What now?, don’t say it
cause I can see it in your eye

The next rounds on me
The next rounds on me
The next rounds on me
The next rounds on me
The next rounds on me
The next rounds on me
The next rounds on me
The next rounds on me
