Time, Gentlemen, Please

‘TIRED of waiting for punters to drink up after closing time, bar staff have taken to extreme measures to get people to leave their pubs.

They have started playing Cliff Richard tunes. In a study, it was discovered that 64-year-old Cliff singing his 1988 No1 hit Mistletoe And Wine cleared bars in a shot.

A spokesman for John Barras pubs said: ”Christmas wouldn’t be complete without Cliff, but he certainly gets customers to drink up.”

Silent Night, Aled Jones’ Walking In The Air and Elvis’ Blue Christmas were also a big turn-off for drinkers.’
