Extended licensing hours

First of all, its not 24-hour drinking.   Hardly any pubs have 24-hour licenses (Hotels & casinos have the vast majority) and even fewer use them, so the term 24-hour drinking is only used as an emotive headline by scaremongering journalists.   Unfortunately the drip-drip-drip constant bombardment has meant that even the BBC uses the phrase.
