Bars in England Drying Up?

On a completely different note, apparently England has a new licensing law for governing the sale of alcohol and the people who run the businesses are not down with what they need to do. There are over 100,000 establishments being put at risk of being shut down due to new paperwork.

More than half of all shops, pubs, restaurants, clubs and hotels that sell alcohol are risking being put out of business by failing to renew their licences in time for new laws governing the sale of drink.

With less than a week to go before the deadline for licence renewal applications under the new Licensing Act, local authorities say six out of every 10 licence-holders in England and Wales have not sent in the forms they need to keep selling alcohol.
