The problem has not been extended licensing itself, but its often baffling application. I don\’t recall, for example, widespread public demand for supermarkets and off-licences to sell booze around the clock.

Well, the widespread public demand is surely in the fact that people are buying and drinking the stuff, which is what you\’re complaining about, isn\’t it?

  1. I remember 30 years ago, when I would come home from work at 5.30 each day and all the supermarkets and small shops were already shut. Now they stay open, and everyone, including shiftworkers, can buy fresh food at a time to suit them. Customers buying groceries usually buy their drinks at the same time.

    Nowadays I get narked when the instore pharmacy, or dry cleaner, isn’t open for the full supermarket hours. I have no time for busybodies who seek to place restrictions on the liberty of others.
