What's desperately needed now is a cure, a programme of recovery and recuperation on a massive scale, and currently there's nothing in sight that can begin to address the scale if damage that's been wrought on the British pub sector, and this society's very own sense of place, by a bunch of pubco short term private equity bandits deliberately plundering our cultural heritage. Heads should roll and punitive jail sentences be handed out but instead, as with the banks, it'll be a load of equity cash ins and golden goodbyes handed out as the indebted pubco's that infected the nation wind down, their job done.
