“I do accept that what we’re doing is extraordinary: we’re taking away the ancient, inalienable right of free-born people of the United Kingdom to go to the pub, & I can understand how people feel about that... It’s a huge wrench”.
The words of Boris Johnson, British Prime Minister, March 2020, at the start of what was about to become months of lockdown. Luckily for us, we had Jay Flynn, a former pub landlord from Lancashire who dreaded losing his right to his weekly quiz at his local pub, his chance to connect with friends and forget about the week. So he created a virtual pub quiz.
I reached out to Jay who I didn't know to offer my support, ever since we have been working together on the quiz.
