And on those Westminster threads how many of us say, ah, but the Senedd is worse? because we stick to topic.

Mow pubs, nt just Welsh pubs, they are dying out. Strangely though the alcohol problem is still there as people just stock up at the supermarket. Smoking was hit hard, no smoking indoors, no adverts, price rise after price rise but besides the price rises they haven't discouraged alcohol whch causes more problems than smoking.


Prohibition has never worked

Can't really discourage alcohol , it's part of our culture and raised millions in taxes and profits. Most ppl drink responsibly. The war on drugs, how has that worked out?

Many pubs were built in towns to quench the thirst of workers .
It also saw many relieved of much of their wages
It led to whole scale wife and kids abuse
Now,they are disappearing .
Good.
We have built a drinking culture and it needs to be culled.

There is certainly some truth in this post OHL.

I am not sure i would say ‘good’ but it does need to be recognised and addressed.
Some people get in problems in drink that otherwise would not occur.

Now I like a nice beer and glass of red but I also try to Keep reasonably fit. Far from super fit but I have plenty of exercise . Also goodish diet. Every day we wake up we are in charge of our own health and safety. Nobody knows if life will throw you a curved ball but you try to be positive. There are guys who absolutely more or less live in the boozer. Many are skilled workers, however many so called professionals are hard drinkers. The law profession being one of the worst of them.
Anyway some fun pics from Wind Street yesterday.

Its all part of the picture, yes.

Drink responsibly and enjoy it.
But make sure you control the drink, rather than the other way around.

Yep.
Drink is a crutch,a distraction from pain,frustration ,loss and yearning .
What angered me was seeing the Alcohol and tobacco industry kill millions.
Successive Conservative governments refused to increase significantly excise duties purely to con the “ plebs” into believing they were doing them a favour. Their putrid line of giving the working man a bit of pleasure . Pleasure by lung cancer and any number of drink related illnesses.
Throw in whole scale wife abuse and there you have it.

Tax increases don’t help I read.
Warlocks.

Fags should be double what they are . Pint of beer £10 ( not 5) and whisky £ 50 a bottle . Scotch whisky industry wiped out? Tough. Coal,iron,steel,shipbuilding,cotton,wool weaving all wiped out so why not them?
Answer, it’s governments way of keeping its populace sweet .

Got to love a puritanical rant from Perchy. God forbid anyone indulge in something that gives them a little pleasure. I note he says nothing of hiking the price of red wine. Just the stuff that the little people enjoy.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

I used to spend far too much time in pubs, I drank far too much for far too long. These days I hardly go in a pub, pretty much its our home games and a few times a year when old friends get together so it doesn't even amount to once a week and even then I rarely have more than 2/3 beers.

That is all I need and I enjoy it far more now than when I was a dipso. My lifeline is a small group of friends who get together every 2-3 weeks for a game of poker and a chat.

Note this then Champ.id make even a basic bottle of plonk a tenner .
You prove my point perfectly in that a debate or discussion on this subject becomes unpleasant or personal,.
“ a little pleasure”.
For too many, “ pleasure or joy cannot be found without a good drink.
It is genuinely staggering we feel like this .

Agree most of us drink, enjoy and don't generally cause problems. It's interesting though that countries like France Italy and Spain where alcohol is generally a lot cheaper have a I believe a more responsible attitude to drinking.

It’s a matter of culture Toggy.
Being drink is not really culturally as acceptable in Spain as here. In Italy ,Greece,,it is social suicide. Anyone ever remember any any Italian or Greek girl,knickers askew,helpless in the gutter unknowing where she lives even.
And this is played out every weekend in the UK.
It makes us look a nation of shite .

We revel in getting rataesed and then wonder why so much violence ensues .
But hey ho,as long as we have “ a little fun”

Men still pride themselves on how much they can put away and girls now following suit

Yeah, I stand by every word even if I am the only poster to see matters this way .

Food in pubs basically the same as restaurants .

It'll be sad day if and when the last pub closes, what's left for the average person who wants to relax and un wind ,conversing with sometimes strangers ,what will be left libraries if you're lucky.If you inclined to excess what ever it maybe then you' don't need a pub to practice .

I'm not sure whether the attention given to Wind Street is a good thing or bad thing, but Swansea featured in quite a few national newspapers, along with photos from Newcastle, Birmingham and London. Part of me is pleased that we are on the map, but I suppose that can be attributed to my inner "lager lout" self from days gone by. The city's prominence is probably down to the photographic skills of Dimitris Legakis/ Athena Pictures, who is apparently one of Swansea City's accredited photographers. Particular praise has been heaped on the artistic composition of his image of a drunk being held down by 3 police officers, while a reveller takes a selfie in the foreground, and a blond with tongue out giving a V-sign, and a bystander holding a police helmet, are in the background. Authentic Wind Street! Great work, Dimitris!

The local real ale pub has put its prices up from £3.60 to £3.80 a pint.
