    Default The pint measure is dying...allegedly.

    Probably wont be Tesco, the new owners have a deal in place with Co-op. At least it is a bit of variety I guess

    Unfortunately one of the pubs is the Roscoe Head in Liverpool, a campaign has already started.

    I agree, although recently I wasn't that taken with the beer choice which is probably down to Punch's stewardship.
    Surely a nationally famous pub like this wouldn't be sold for use as anything other than a pub? Are they so stupid that they don't realise there will be massive opposition? I guess that's a rhetorical question.

    A few links about the Roscoe Head and Punch:

    http://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/...rotect-9930413


    Liverpool Camra on Twitter "To help save @TheRoscoeHead please support any ACV application & oppose any planning application"
    "To help save @TheRoscoeHead if you live in Riverside constituency, write to Louise Ellman MP. Every letter counts."

    Sadly we can't write to this MP unless we're constituents but the pubs minister, Marcus Jones is a different matter,

    Please note the rules "This member currently holds a Government post, so they may answer questions on behalf of the government, but conventionally do not normally submit questions to be answered by the government (of which they are a member). They can supply answers on behalf of a government department."

    And a similar story from Cambridge:

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
