As reported via the Dayton Daily News:
Politicians call for ‘National Beer Day’
By Mark Fisher | Tuesday, April 7, 2009, 08:04 AM
British brewers and legislators are calling for a “National Beer Day” as part of a campaign to save the “great British Pub,” according to this Restaurants and Institutions magazine story.
And get this: More than 200 British legislators have thrown their support behind the campaign. Can you imagine 200 members of Congress calling for a National Beer Day in the U.S.?
Then again, perhaps the pubs on this side of the pond aren’t quite as endangered as they are in Great Britain …
Here, according to the story, are the details of the “five point plan” proposed by the British Beer and Pub Association:
— To axe plans to increase beer tax even further;
— To enforce existing laws - not create new ones - to deal firmly with irresponsible drinkers and premises;
— To end the irresponsible promotion of alcohol in supermarkets, pubs and elsewhere;
— To trust responsible adults to make informed choices about what they drink, not punish them for the actions of an irresponsible minority;
—- To support the British pub as a vital part of social life in local communities.
Now, a cynical observer might suspect that the brewers threw in points 2 and 3 to make the proposal more palatable to the public.
A point worth pondering over a pint, perhaps.

Funny how they have a polar oppositie view and position toward themself as in relation to firearms laws and citizens being allowed to protect themself, their family, and their home, business and/or property.
But want to drink beer at the pub ***! we can't ban nor increase tax on that!!!1
Something must be done...
Seriously though, I am completely stupified by this.
Read each of their five point plan and it is exactly what their own people in their own country have been saying and campaigning on as basis behind _reinstatement_ of their national right to arms for all lawful purposes.
It's just bizarre.
I would celebrate it.
