Last orders

This story slipped my notice a couple days ago but it looks like the government is going to go back on one of the very few minor liberal policies that it has enacted. They want curbs on the pub licensing laws that they only just freed up. This government, it's enough to drive one to drink.

I said at the time that it was not the intention of the 2003 Licensing act to create longer drinking hours; instead it was a move to take over the control and extend central government control of licensing laws, it also extends police and local council officers powers. Extended drinking times was only ever the headline spin, if that was all the government wanted to do it could have been simply achieved by relaxing the laws the magistrates applied.
