    Default No alcohol for MPs

    BBC News - Covid: All alcohol sales to be banned in House of Commons
    Covid: All alcohol sales to be banned in House of Commons - BBC News

    The House of Commons is to stop serving alcohol on its premises, after tougher Covid restrictions were announced across the UK.

    Speaker Sir Lindsay Hoyle said the ban would begin on Saturday, and apply to all catering outlets, whether food is served or not.

    He said he had ordered the move as some MPs represent constituencies where pubs have now been closed.

    The drinks ban, he added, would last for the "foreseeable future".

    I suppose it depends on whether they're mean drunks or not. And then others require a couple of glasses of wine to be sober.

    We'd never have won WWII if Churchill wasn't permanently pissed.
