Oh dear seems like I touched a nerve! Same as anyone else I can offer my opinions on the topic and what people write.
In my opinion there’s three or four people on here that don’t like what’s being offered in order to resolve a difficult situation but can do nothing more than complain rather than accept the resolution let alone offer a workable alternative.
The Brexit analogy is therefore appropriate.
Another analogy that seems appropriate would be Season Ticket holders getting first option to buy tickets for big matches. Only when the people who have paid up front have bought their tickets are they offered to fans who haven’t. I used “entitled’ because you want to claim the right to entry into the new bar when you haven’t- for whatever reason- paid up front. In other words, you want the ‘Liverpool ‘ ticket and as you cannot get one in the first round of sales allege that the club is somehow stopping you from attending a game where there is less demand- say Oldham.
Nobody is saying you can’t gain access to the bar when there’s availability but you want the right to enter when it suits you.
