Letter to the editor: 24 hour drinking is not so unusual
What is all the fuss about? Hasn't anyone ever been to Europe before, where in most countries bars are allowed to stay open for 12-hour shifts, starting from for example 2pm until 2am etc, etc?
I lived in Amsterdam for a year and there were only a handfull of bars open later than 2am in the morning.
It's the binge mentality of our opening hours we need to get away from and allowing more flexible opening hours can only be a good thing.
