Clutching at straws

More words of wisdom from Colin Shevills of the 100% state-funded temperance group Balance...

Great news! But what are community pubs? They are, as the Morning Advertiser explains, 'pubs owned as community businesses'.

Cool. And how many are there in the UK?

During the period, 14 new pubs opened, bringing the number of community pubs in Britain to 15.

Wow, fifteen pubs are 'thriving'! Let's put alcohol taxes up!


With pubs already closing at a shocking rate of 18 a week, according to the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) figures, the future of the great British pub is very much in question

On second thoughts, let's cut business rates, cut alcohol duty and repeal the smoking ban.
