The Dirty Dozen
Is it only me that thinks this is an overreaction? Yes, they were allegedly caught breaking the law. Although, it has to be said, I doubt you will find many people marching through the streets demanding stricter enforcement of this particular piece of legislation. It is, after all, really just a trade dispute. And the fact that the police are getting more involved in this matter is just laughable.
But ok, the law is the law. And Hull CC are conducting a review of the pubs involved. But what has happened to innocent till proven guilty? Is it really fair that the pubs are forced to close whilst this review takes place? If there was a possible risk to the public, it might be understandable. However, all I see here is protection of Sky and ESPN’s monopoly.
