Ah Wetherspoons, the most British of all pubs...  Often housed in architectural masterpieces, the venues never fail to disappoint with their cheap beer, cheap food and cheap decor. They have become famed for their sticky floors, which can instantly turn the average British punter carrying three pints across a busy bar, into a contestant from 70s manic gameshow 'It's a Knockout' another Great British institution.

It's no surprise then, that at the helm of this most British of businesses is fiercely vocal eurosceptic Tim Martin, a man who appears to style himself on Back to The Future's Doc Brown, and has political ideas that like Marty McFly, are stuck in the past.

Now a moment of honesty here, I thought it would be amusing to post a campaign to ask Wetherspoons to get rid of all EU based products before discovering, to my amazement, when I looked into it, that Tim Martin himself had made this pledge to move away from EU based products within 24 months back in June 2018... so the credit for this Inane Campaign should really go to him.  The problem is that was 26 months ago, and the majority of the products they offer on their hugely popular menu are still from guess where?

A quick glance at the lagers on the 'Spoons' app shows that today you could buy a pint of Carlsberg, Heineken, Guinness, Stella Artois or Kronenburg if you were feeling continental and had 3 great British pounds burning a hole in your pocket.  To be fair the wine list is looking a lot more in keeping with Martin's anti EU stance, unless you're a prossecco fan, in which case it's virtually all Italian. Too early for booze? Grab yourself a Lavazza coffee, a brew that's very tagline is 'The Real Italian Coffee. 

So Mr Martin has a bit of clearing out to do if he wants to get the EU out of his restaurants as much as he wanted to get the UK out of the EU... by why stop at drinks.  The breakfasts proudly boast a dollop of Lurpak on the side and the latest addition to the  pizza menu is a carbonara pizza, and that's before we get into nit picking about hollandaise sauce, brie cheese, halloumi, lasagne and spaghetti bolognese!

All in all, the hypocrisy leaves a bad taste in the mouth, much worse than the taste of one of Wetherspoons' cheap burgers.  Mr Martin needs to get this sorted and put his vast amount of money where vastly used mouth is, and start worrying about making his breakfast as free from Europe as his Brexit.
