    Interior mock-up looks like a motorway services, designed to be uncomfortable so you don't stay too long

    You'd have to be going some to get thrown out of the one in Yeovil.

    Wetherspoons boss says UK pubs will stay open as long as possible

    He said that people getting the virus early and becoming immune could be beneficial

    Keep your fingers crossed you get the mild form Tim.

    His views aren't very helpful. The idea is to prevent the NHS becoming more overwhelmed than it already is. He's obviously forgetting that the majority of his weekday day trade comes from retired people, especially away from city centres.

    A shareholder revolt can't be far off if he carries on like this. They hate reputational damage.

    There was a talk on the news last night with James Hadfield the astronaut about how to survive self isolation. One of the things he said was along the lines of "If everyone around you seems to be behaving like a jerk then take a look at yourself, it could be you that's the jerk".
    I wonder if Tim Martin saw this or even Donald Trump.

    If Tim is being this bad, I wonder how Humphrey is treating his staff?
