Wetherspoon News

Among the mail we received this morning was a copy of "Wetherspoon News". Amusement at the idea that they thought I would have any interest in their ****ty "pubs" turned to disgust when I took a closer look at the front cover.

"Circle of Deceit

How the metropolitan elite tried to con the British public about the need for a 'deal' with the EU - and about food prices post Brexit". More inside, probably a dozen pages.

WTF has that got to do with cheap booze & mediocre food?

We all know that Wetherspoon's owner has extremist views on Brexit; maybe he should be concentrating on matter which he has more control over, such as (according to Owen Jones, who also holds extreme views!) paying his staff less than the living wage.

My contempt for him has reached new levels. I've never been in a Wetherspoons, never will; my wife hasn't since she found out what a prat their owner is.

I accept that the owners of businesses I deal with will have different views to me over a wide range of issues; what I won't accept is owners of those businesses trying to impose those views on me.

The plural of "anecdote" is not "data".

David, they sent you a leaflet, hardly an imposition.

I’m not playing the devils advocate her, I really like their pubs.

They have a good selection of beers, all you can drink coffee, some of their customers could do with being introduced to soap, hot water, a razor blade, a barber and a dictionary, but hey ho it is what it is.

Didn't Wetherspoons take all 'Forrin' beers off the menu in their establishments? Who exactly is paying for this propaganda? Mr Martin or Wetherspoons plc?

In the interests of balance I must just say that I would have found a similar publication expressing views I agree with just as objectionable.

Before the vote I got sent a letter from the Government saying how Brexit was bad, and how voting to leave would mean leaving the customs union and common market.

I cannot see much of a difference, one is pro EU the other Anti.

If you don't like it either chuck it or keep it until you are short of toilet paper.

I think what's worse is the brewing (ho) of incomplete, misguided and unpleasant views, stoked by the cheap ale and the macho camaraderie of iffy pubs. But that's the same as it ever was innit.



Ultimately my biggest complaint about him is his hair.
