After the Revitalisation project CAMRA started, whenever, no one really cared, they voted on many things. Needing 75% approval but only achieving 72%, the organisation failed to recognise that all beer was equal, or something like that.
Cask was the ultimate and keg was secondary.
I’d agree but as we have learnt with voting…well as the Simpsons put it
You never get the results you want and most appreciate that and with an organisation such as CAMRA you can simply cancel your membership and leave and in all honesty that decision won’t impact on you enjoyment of beer and where to have it, well pubs may continue to close but CAMRA aren’t really trying to stop that, no one can except those who wish to continue spending money in those establishments.
Quote Joni Mitchell…
Many left CAMRA at that moment and bragged about it in a show of pure virtue, the stay-and-reform-from-within group looking slightly bemused by the whole process.
You pays your money, you takes your choice.
The insidiousness of the public health lobby groups coupled with an authoritarian nanny state is leading to us responsible adults being forced into to take numerous hits no only to our personal freedom and the appreciation of the fact we are responsible for our own well being, but also being hit in the pocket.
Tax, tax and more tax.
Which brings us onto minimum unit pricing, or MUP, and quite frankly I’ve just waffled on enough when the title of this piece would have been enough.
Like all CAMRA proposals, it won’t really have any impact as MUP will be steam-rollered in by far more powerful and of-the-zeitgeist organisations than the sandal brigade ever were.
Slow. Hand. Clap.
Just when voices against were required.
Fuck it. I’ll just drink beer under my bed covers, locked in my own home, that way I might get some peace. The stockpiling begins now.
Democracy – so good the Simpsons did the same joke twice.
Thanks for reading.
