The controversy seems to have reached a conclusion of sorts. Hints and allegations made in the Lounge about those running the Bar have been withdrawn under legal advice.
As a regular in the pool room and smoker out the front I am privvy to some of the thoughts of the clientele of both the Bar and Lounge.
I have requested that a few of the lads in the Lounge 'cool it' re: personal abuse. Thats no problem they say as long as the lads in the Bar do the same.
Since some of the lads in the Lounge might still have issues to raise I have suggested that they buy their own corner shop and they can say what they like there and its not the lads running the Lounge that have to take all the risk.
Now, who wants another Pint ?
