The puritans strike back

The biggest shake-up of the licensing system since the last big shake-up will take effect in Scotland tomorrow when the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 comes fully into force.

The main impact is supposed to be the banning of "happy hours".

Who are they kidding? Have they ever been in a Scottish pub? There hasn't been a happy hour in a Scottish pub since the battle of Bannockburn. Not even a happy minute.

They were not too happy after Bannockburn. Because they won the mercenaries all had to be paid.
