Every Little Helps

Thanks to Danivon for pointing this out. Last month Tesco’s case before the council’s licensing committee was deferred to give them more time to prepare their case, and I had a sneaking suspicion that it was going to end up with a slap on the wrist – token fine or something.

Having a drinks licence suspended for 28 days might sound a bit lenient, and really it should have been 90 days, but it must represent a substantial revenue: enough even for a company like Tesco to notice in their smaller shops and certainly enough to make smaller off licences decide that flogging booze to kids isn’t worth the risk.
