Anyone who wants to run a pub should definitely not kidnap an heiress. Word has reached The Independent on Sunday’s Market Whispers column that the crime has been added to the Licensing Act 2003 as one of the offences that would prevent someone holding an alcohol licence. Others are having sexual intercourse with a “defective” or committing violent crimes, including arson. The article says it is good to know we are being protected from miscreants who would like to serve us liquor, particularly if they have an heiress in their cellar.
