Labour’s plan to tackle the decline of pubs is anything but
UKIP Leader and long time advocate of UKIP’s “Save the Pub Campaign” Paul Nuttall said, “Labour has announced plans that are intended to tackle the decline of pubs however, they will do anything but that.
“Their plans demonstrate a complete lack of joined up thinking. Whilst guaranteeing to list all pubs as “assets of community value” to help stop them being sold off to supermarket chains and the like is laudable, when combined with an refusal to rule out a rise in beer duty it is nothing but an empty gesture. Protecting pubs from becoming supermarkets, while at the same time reinforcing the supermarkets ability to undercut pub prices is fantasy economics, and a cruel fantasy at that.

PUBS WANT OUT
UKIP MEP Paul Nuttall, a long term campaigner for British pubs, has welcomed a survey of the hospitality industry released today that has the industry supporting leaving the EU.
The survey, conducted by William Reed/HIM has the whole industry lining up on the “Leave” campaign by 39% to 37% for ‘Remain’. When small businesses including pubs themselves are singled out the difference is far greater with a full 46% planning to vote out.
Paul Nuttall, UKIP deputy leader, said, “It is clear that pubs recognise that they would be better off out. They are a microcosm of this country, in them the great matters are discussed and they always have been. Be it the weather, sport or politics.
“As I have always said, every pub is a parliament, a parliament of ordinary people, and there, it is clear that people believe that our country’s future will be better served by leaving the EU.
“It is telling that the smaller the business the more likely that they will vote to Leave. The simple fact is that at least 80% of people are employed by businesses that do not export to the EU, but 100% of them are covered by the regulations that stem from there.
“They make employing people more difficult, make publicans spend more time dealing with paperwork than dealing with customers and make expansion and business development a nightmare.”
