    As ever, thanks to everyone who helped out with this! In particular Marc, whose hovercraft will have had a faint smell of beer about it for a day or two afterwards...

    So if it's meant to be used for commercial travel, why wouldn't the law just specify "passengers" and not "from a vehicle on a journey"

    Wait, what if someone made a bar in a traincart, and say a 100m long track, just going back and fourth at a ridiculously low speed, so it reaches each end in an hr or so. then they could sell alcohol without a licence?

    I think you're videos would be way more popular if they played to the algorithm better. I've been watching for years, and subscribed yet I never get anything from you recommended. It's frustrating having to search the channel everytime I want to check if there's something new. Does anyone else get this? Maybe subject for a video?
