Very impressed with this stuff from Adnams. Unlike all other alcohol free beers I've tried, you wouldn't know from the taste.

So there was a big protest today by schoolkids who blew off school and marched in the streets over government inaction on climate change.

The Prime Minister has said they should be less activist and focus on their schooling instead.
