    Does this Humphrey bloke have a bright red face and shouts a lot? Years ago I wrote to Sams asking if they could provide a list of their pubs. and got a refusal with a similar line about them being a small struggling local brewery. I agree it does serve him right. He sounds like a Yorkshire Donald Trump.

    I can't even imagine any other circumstances where one might toy with the idea of deploying the phrase "makes Donald Trump look like a thoughtful international statesman"...

    I have a great deal of time for Mr Humphrey, his only problem is that he believes it is 1858 hence his management style and distain for government meddling in his business.
    There are many diseases,
    that strike people's kneeses,
    Covid19! is one by name
    It comes from the East
    Packed in bladders of yeast
    So the Chinese must take half the blame.

    I came up with an idea to present an award for our CAMRA branch awards night to the longest-closed pub in the branch for no good reason...guess who owns it?!

    But has anybody actually caught Humph on video (or even in a photograph)?

    I wonder if it's "management style" or "Government meddling" to blame here. We've got lots of un-let SS pubs in Yorkshire, mainly we think because word is out about Mr Humphrey's style.

    In case you missed it; http://samsmiths.info/ although the forum bit seems to have a problem.
