I see that Tesco are having a wee bit of trouble in applying for a licence to sell booze from their store in East Road Cambridge (between 11am-11pm).
The local police, and certain councillors, fear that "cheap" booze sold so near a school and "Jimmy's Night Shelter" could lead to a rise in alcohol related crime.
1 Supermarkets have rather tedious rules about selling booze to anyone who looks remotely under the age of 25 (unless they can produce an id). How likely is it that the store will sell it to the kids?
2 Does Cambridge not already have supermarkets, off licenses and pubs that sell booze? I seem to recall that it is full of them (indeed the local students are well known for imbibing in "Brideshead Revisited" quantities...yes, I know that was set in Oxford!).
It seems rather prissy to me for some people to be objecting to Tesco selling booze.
