Aa booked at table for 6 upstairs in 'Rosies Bar' near SJP for wor home game v Brightin on Sunday---BUT!---today a'v had 2 phone caalls off mates to say that because we can't sit together, they arn't comin' now!
This will be devastatin news for AALL 'liquid lubrication locations' (pubs!), az they will be forced to torn a group of 6 friends away, for fear of a spot check, and ultimate closure!
I am gannin into 'Rosies' later today (On mee own!) to find oot exactly wot the situation iz, but I fear that they will tell me that anly ONE of us will be allowed in, az we are not related or live in the same hoosehold!
That's one person drinkin up to 6 pints durin the match, instead of 36 pints between us!
It will surely finish off many of the pubs that HAVE reopened since restrictions were lifted and sadly 2 historic pubs, 'The Crown Posada' near the Quayside (The Toons oldest pub, opened in the 1700s!) and 'The Star' on Westgate Road, will be closed for good! (so we hear!)
I will let yoo naa just wot they tell me in 'Rosies' when aa gan for me normal 'liquid lubrications'!
Az per usual, "Watch this space!" for forthaa news!

It's not law!
