The Thursday Quote

“Believing in the rights of the individual, I never did believe in prohibition, but the evening guzzle round the pubs is a pretty sickening sight, leads to an awful lot of drunkenness, which wouldn’t exist save for that evening swill in a hurry. If I had my way there’d be a pretty searching inquiry into the brewery racket.
“Personally, I’m in favor of extended hours and more being made available, not so that people will have more facilities for get ting drunk but so that they can drink if they want to at greater leisure. There couldn’t be more drunkenness than at present. There might conceivably be much less if the bun rush were cut out.”
