I just happened to hear it on the BBC news, a few minutes ago, during my 11pm walk.

Wow! Wow! Wow!

Prohibition. Wow!

Supposedly to reduce stress on the medical system from alcohol-related issues — so that they have MORE capacity to fight COVID-19.

Seems pretty drastic & dramatic.

Appears they already had a ban earlier this year. I obviously did not hear of that.

Gather the ban was introduced without any lead time so folks cannot stockpile.

I am sure there were those that knew about it & made provisions to make a killing on the blackmarket. I know how South Africa, alas, works.

Just think if this happened here or in the U.K.

I would be screwed without my red wine. SMILE.
