Wetherspoons Kicks Out More Foreign-Sounding Booze

That man who owns those pubs is getting political again, with Mr Wetherspoon demanding his suppliers source more British-sounding alcohols instead of your bloody foreign rubbish like Courvoisier and Jägermeister. It's not racism, of course, because you can't be racist to objects and also because drinks sourced from outside the EU are cheaper and taste better, says the JDW owner. Read More >>
