Someone nameless sent me this.
Shaming me for going to pubs during a pandemic, even though both the pubs and I are taking all precautions to avoid catching Covid.
The world seems equally split between those cautiously re-entering the world and finding comfort in UK hospital deaths falling below 5 a day, and those staying firmly behind closed doors waiting for a vaccine that may never come.
As always, the Manchester City fan forum has better and more polite debate than you’ll get on the BBC or in the Guardian.
On Tuesday, we bought my Mum a mobility aid so she can get up and identify plants in her garden again.
Then I popped out with Mrs RM and James for my second “Eat Out to Help Out” trip of the week, just up the road at the Haymakers in Chesterton.
We like this one. Our local brewery runs it, it’s a Proper Pub, and serves the best pizzas north of Naples.
They really need our support, having missed out on all the Government largesse during Lockdown, but they’re making hay now. Three pizzas and three drinks for £20, fill your boots Cambridge.
The young professionals of north Cambridge were packing the expanded garden at 5pm on Tuesday, meaning the Haymakers could even start to expand their beer offering a bit. I stuck with the Pegasus (NBSS 3.5), because I’m dull.
All you need to know here is that Mrs RM had a pint of Marcus Aurelius in the sun.
You’ve never seen a pint of 7.5% stout drunk so quick, bless her. She wouldn’t leave until I bought her another half. 6 units in an hour; efficient drinking.
But is Rishi’s scheme tax efficient for the UK ?
If it can get the worried well out of their houses and back in the pubs and reassure them about resuming life, it’ll probably be worth the bill it passes on to my lads.
