Every great society, from the satrapies of Ur and Babylon to the ‘grande empire’ of Napoleon, was made or broken by the strength of its high street shops. Regulations, divined behind closed doors and handed down by cruel diktat, only allow so-called ‘essential shops’ to remain open. But who voted for these occult mechanisms, these mysterious augeries which allow one man to earn his daily bread and rule that the other bend his head in supplication for his daily dole? This hardy nation of shopkeepers should have their lives disrupted no longer.
