If there is one group of people who must relish the prospect of global warming, it is that of those who work in the pub trade.
They have been hit really hard over the last few years with unfair competition from the undercutting supermarkets and customers reducing their spending during the recession. Many pubs have simply gone to the wall, while others have had to diversify into new areas of the hospitality business.
What the above picture proves, however, is there’s life in the old dog yet and once we feel a bit of warmth from the sun, we are prepared to venture out of our caves and be both generous and sociable.
I would bet our politicians are hoping that the weather is fine on May 6th and our mood is just as relaxed and generous!
