Pub Talk: Brexit

During a meet-and-greet with Tim Martin at one of his Wetherspoons pubs in Birmingham, I was surrounded by a noisy group of remain-supporting, blue T-shirt and beret-wearing, EU flag-waving demonstrators. They were ready for a fight but I was ready for a pint!


It’s Conservative party Conference, and part of the charm is bumping into people you see on TV, so I stopped to talk. Eventually they stopped shouting and draping their awful flag over my head and we had a lively discussion for a good 20 minutes.

Afterwards I invited them in for a free beer on Tim. They declined in favour of attending a talk with Anna Soubry just down the road.

From one pub talk to another…
