World Cup TV shock for South African establishments.

According to new draft legislation of the Department of Trade and Industry called The 2010 World Cup Liquor Policy, no establishments will be allowed to show any World Cup soccer matches on TV sets without a special liquor licence that will cost R50 000.

According to the preposterous proposed legislation, no pub, restaurant, hotel, boat or university would be able to have a TV set turned on to the World Cup soccer if they don't have a R50 000 special liquor licence for their ''public viewing area''.

When applying for the special liquor licence, a ''security plan'' also has to be submitted.
