I keep reading about giving up the booze for January and seeing ads about it on TV and I know I have a vested interest but there are a few things that should be borne in mind. Whilst it is all well and good for Cancer Research to have TV ads showing customers asking for soda water and lime to great applause, and whilst publicans are happy to serve that, if all our customers ordered that for a month we would all go out of business. During January we have to pay rent, business rates, utility bills like any other month. We also have to pay our staff, or do Cancer Research think they should just be laid off for the month? We raise money for the government in the form of VAT and duty on beer etc. We pay tax, as do our employees. Before you decide to give it all up remember that the pub might not be there when you want it next.
In the meantime,to tempt you during January we have loads of music and stuff!
