You can shoot them about 3 metres through a straw, like a blowpipe.

Pubs are open again, but if you want a pint you'll have to buy a meal with it.
How exactly does forcing customers to buy a meal with their pint make them safer from germs?
The pint ONLY WITH A MEAL rule smells suspiciously like Licensed Vitners Association LVA Fianna Fail gouging of customers again.

It is designed to do one simple thing, to make sure that pubs are operating as restaurants. How many people are going to go for a pint if they are limited by time and have to buy a meal. That's it point. To put off people.

The question was, how does operating as a restaurant make a pub safer than operating as a pub?
The answer is, it doesn't.
Therefore what we are seeing is government declaring war on the traditional Irish pub, on traditional Irish ways, there's no other way to see it, what we are witnessing is the government deliberately wrecking an historic aspect of our way of life, which by the way is what brings millions of tourists to this country every year. Or at least used to.

Another person who understands nothing. I just explained. Restaurants by design have less interaction between customers. So pubs acting as restaurants are saver than acting as a normal bar. How don't you realise that.

You're a bit late in lamenting the demise of the traditional Irish Pub.

Social distancing was the norm in the ones which I favoured, that and grumpy curates.

Have you been to a good old fashioned Irish pub?

Maybe they do things differently down the country.

There is no evidence, no numbers, no statistics showing people at the table eating is safer than people at the table drinking.
This rule forcing pub customers to eat is government sponsored gouging pure and simple, must have been lobbied hard by the Licensed Vitners Association and Fianna Fail publicans

Your strapline calls for an end to the 'coronabogus' so that anything you have to say on the nicer detail, seems a bit irrelevant, to tell you the truth.

Yes the Licensed Vintners Association and FF have done this to discouraged people going to pubs, and kept half the pubs closed, which is why the rules are there, I don't see how you are not getting that. To gouge people by having less customers for a shorter time period with less bars open is the opposite effect of the rules.
