“Cooling off time”

This afternoon, my mum suggested that pubs might be allowed an extra hour or two opening time following final sales of alcoholic beverages in order to allow their patrons to sober-up.

As a further thought, during those couple of hours, said pubs might sell soft-drinks and snacks.  This way, I envisage there’d be fewer drunken patrons proceeding straight from their pub to the ‘Bottlo.’

Thoughts?

    Tea, coffee, cakes and a game of bridge would provide a more dignified milieu during that time.

    Sounds good to me, though it’d be hard to get pub owners to stay open but not make any money (they make a lot less from snacks and soft-drinks).
