Not Open All Hours

The Labour and Conservative party voted not to extend Sunday opening hours. Funny, because I don't remember asking to be banned from Sunday evening shopping.

With the development of the internet, the need to remove Sunday trading restrictions remains as strong as ever. The rules create a market distortion that favours virtual shops compared to physical shops - and hinder the much-loved local retailer compared to giants like Tesco and Amazon. I would like to buy as much fresh food as possible as close to the start of the working week as possible.

What's so special about Sunday anyway? The Sabbath in North London takes place on either Friday or Saturday.
