    Same story, different spin - The press trying to stimulate a reaction.

    Much of the same, though it may not affect most here.

    “Strongbow and John Smiths pints will be removed from Spoons menus, leaving many customers disappointed.”

    Really? Who are these people?

    Dark Fruits is a massive seller amongst the under-30's, an occasional Pub Thursday participant at my work fits that demographic perfectly and that's all she has. I bet Spoons sell more Dark Fruits than their combined guest cask. To quote Sir Humphrey, Timbo's decision is a 'brave' one.

    I was wondering that. Surely the replacements are no worse, perhaps marginally better?

    Brand loyalty, especially amongst the young.

    The one thing to always break brand loyalty amongst the kids is cheap prices, which has worked for Timbo in the past. I suspect it'll work again here, eventually.

    But isn't Stowford Press Mixed Berries just the same sort of drink with a different name? If it's sold at the same price, or thereabouts, won't the under-30s simply switch? Or will they look for somewhere else where they can get it for £1 or £2 more? (Much the same with John Smiths being replaced by Worthington.)

    Yes, I can see and hear him saying that. Hugely funny. But was he always right?

    I was just about to post this.

    What's the difference between Boris Johnson and Tim Martin?

    Boris Johnson caters for more drinkers.

    Mind you, Starmer's on the lash too.
