    It's the one for those people who said they would boycott 'spoons in future even though they never used 'spoons in the past. Probably a bit too common for them; full of the lower orders and old codgers.
    Drink drink, whoever you may be,
    we are the drunk and disorderly,
    and we’ll drink more beer wherever we may be,
    and we’ll meet you all in a pub said he.

    ...or a drain on cash which could be better spent propping up real pubs.

    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    My Wetherspoons App suggests to me there is a shortage of Greene King beers and Doombar in Timbo's outlets, should I worry? Lasr weeek it was guest beers.

    I don't have a Wetherspoons App and very unlikely to ever want one.

    You may be lucky where you live and drink, the North is a different country and Scotland even more so. (Basingstoke excepted)

    If you haven't been into a 'spoons since the lockdown was eased, the Summer 2020 version of Wetherspoon News contains some very robust responses about what was said (or not said) by Timbo back in March and how it was (mis)reported in the national newspapers - some of which have since apologised, at least in part - and by several politicians.
